Eva Frankfurther artist (1930-1959)

Woman with Fur Collar

(private collection)

description A half-length portrait of a dark-haired woman, seen in three quarter face view with her head turned to the left, sitting with folded arms. She wears a coat with a luxurious fur collar. Her hairstyle, jewellery, clothes, and her upright demeanour, suggest a more prosperous sitter than is usual in Frankfurther's work, although the identity of the sitter remains unknown.
