A stunning original Art Deco oil painting on canvas by noted British female artist Helen Margaret MacKenzie. It is very evocative of the 1920’s Art Deco period and depicts the artist in a white dress with a floral bouquet and her cat. A very colourful and vibrant painting in a fine silvered frame. She was born in Scotland and this shows all the attributes of the Scottish School and Colourist tradition.
