Dorothea Sharp believed colour to be as important as form in the creation of a work and painted quickly with a heavily loaded brush. These ideas and techniques were learnt in Paris where she became influenced by the Impressionists, particularly by Monet. She was well known for her paintings of women and children, like with this intimate scene of a mother and child which would be a lovely addition to any collection.
