Archibald George Barnes (1887 - 1972) 'Innocence'
This young society princess has the most striking blue eyes, the whole executed with that crisp clarity of application that characterised 1930s romantic painting. It is an endless mystery to me that paintings of this quality and decorative potential, not to mention sentimental value, fall out of the ownership of their sitter’s descendants. This young lady needs a good home.
