Barbara Doyle (b.1917) - 1996 Oil, Carmen Barbara



A portrait of a jolly woman with a flamboyant floral headdress. The artist has used a blue palette that makes the areas of yellow and red used for the jacket and headdress stand out against the other muted tones. The artist has signed and dated to the lower left corner. On board.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. There is some wear to the paint around the edges and general wear and dirt to the surface. There is noticeable damage to the board at the two lower corners.


48.3 x 38cm (19" x 15")
Sheet: 51.6 x 41.9cm (20.3" x 16.5")

Collection Information

Sulis Fine Art is proud to present this large and varied collection of oil paintings by the mid Century artist, Barbara Doyle. Doyle's subject matter has great range and depth, with a focus on portraits and floral still lifes.

An unusually consistent and signature style was developed early on in her career and stayed with the artist, right through to her most recent works. Doyle uses muted palettes to make flecks of vibrancy stand out all the more against the darker backgrounds. With a 'rough and ready' approach to painting, Doyle has created a body of work that has universal appeal.
