Evelyn Dunbar

The appearance of a painting by the late Evelyn Dunbar, the only salaried female war artist of WW2, on the BBC Antiques Roadshow in 2013 led to the rediscovery of her "lost studio" in an attic in Kent and doubled the known body of her work overnight. Shown is her Milking Practice with Artificial Udders (1940) which depicts how land girls were trained to work on farms during WW2. Evelyn Dunbar: The Lost Works is an exhibition of 60 of her best paintings at the Pallant House Gallery in Chichester (CLICK).
