Gouache on paper, framed, featuring a female portrait. Signed Augustus John (1878-1961, British) on the lower right corner. 8.5 x 6.3 in. (21.5 x 16 cm). Although well-known early in the century for his drawings and etchings, the bulk of John's later work consisted of portraits, some of the best of which were of his two wives and his children. He was known for the psychological insight of his portraits, many of which were considered "cruel" for the truth of the depiction. PROVENANCE: Southern Ontario estate
