An in depth study of the life and work of the artistic siblings Doris and Anna Zinkeisen. The sisters enjoyed great success with their painting during the 1920s to 1950s. Their portraits capture the sprit of the roaring twenties. These paintings are discussed and illustrated here, alongside war and medical images, travel posters, murals for luxury ocean liners, and costume designs for theatre and film. The book also examines the work of the Zinkeisens' daughters, Julia Heseltine, Janet Johnstone and Anne Graham Johnstone.
