Doris Violet Blair 

(1915-2011 Belfast)

Interior, Belfast, c.1938  *SOLD*


in a period frame

Doris Violet Blair is best known for her depictions of Northern  Ireland during WWII. This subtle and introspective etching was one of a  series of domestic wartime interiors. There was an exhibition at the  Ulster Museum with another etching from this series in 2018-2019,  "Making Her Mark", looking at the impact of women artists on the history  of print-making, and how they used the art form to expand their  practice and gain financial independence. Just as the novel was an  acceptable art form for women writers at the end of the 18th in to the  19th century, so too was illustration and print making for the women  artists of the early 20th century.
