This beautifully presented still life brings to mind the work of Sir William Nicholson with the skilful capture of reflections and the sparse background leading the eye to the central subject. It is presented in the original hand-made frame.
Lizzie Hogarth was a descendant of William Hogarth; she donated a portrait of the artist's wife to the Aberdeen Art Gallery and Museum in 1939.
She studied firstly under James Hector at the United Free College Aberdeen and then at St Martin's, London. She was a member of the Royal Society of British Artists (1916) and the Society of Woman Artists (1922). She exhibited regularly at these societies and also at the Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts, the International Society , the Walker Art Gallery, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI) and the Royal Scottish Academy (RSA).
