Portrait of the artist Tirzah Garwood

Phyllis Dodd (British, 1899-1995) - Portrait of the artist Tirzah Garwood, 1929 - Garwood’s autobiography shines light on the situation of a young female artist during the middle decades of the 20th century, contending with issues of self-confidence as an artist, the emerging awareness of the tyranny of society’s expectations of women but also the sense that hers was a generation and a milieu from which radical transformations in behaviour could be expected.
