November 2021 - ING Discerning Eye
"Interior with Helen Saunders" (above) & "Matriarchy" (below) were selected for the ING Discerning Eye Exhibition. Art Critic Paul Carey Kent wrote about "Interior with Helen Saunders" as one of his top picks from the show.
"A beautifully painted interior infers, slightly mournfully, the absence of an owner with a refined sense of chromatic coordination. But Lottie Cole is also framing the history of art. Go back to the time when the prominent painting within the painting was made, and the woman’s place was commonly considered to be in the home. Yet the housewife in this case may be an exception, in the studio, making art unlikely to be taken seriously by the male-dominated establishment. That’s what Helen Saunders (1885-1963) was a doing in 1915 – the dynamic diagonals on the wall are those of the under-appreciated Vorticist’s ‘Abstract Composition in Blue and Yellow’ from that year. Actually, it’s in the Tate’s collection, though typically – as now – it’s not on display, even though the stock of Saunders and her sister Vorticist, Jessica Dismorr, has risen recently." - SOLD
