Two Jamaican Girls

Two Jamaican Girls - Augustus John 1937

This painting is in The Walker Gallery, Liverpool, UK.
It seems to shout across the room "Come look at me!"

Wyndham Lewis describes the artist, Augustus John, as:

‘a great man of action into whose hands the fairies had placed a paintbrush instead of a sword’.

If you are in Liverpool a visit to The Walker Gallery is a 'must do' - do it!
