Item Ref



Oil on canvas in original carved frame; signed and dated lower left "W. CRAIG-HAINISCH/1955".
A superb portrait, utterly redolent of its period, the sitter, in an evening gown, elegantly holds a red rose...symbol of beauty and love.
This glamorous image of the society beauty Bettine, married to Geoffrey Goldberg, was the second time Hainisch had painted her; the first time, in 1939, was as an entrancing young woman in a daring blue evening gown.
WOLF CRAIG HAINISCH was a famous society artist of the 30s, 50s and 60s. A German, he lived and worked in London; he had originally come to England as a prisoner of war during the First World War when he was confined on the Isle of Wight.
Amongst others Hainisch painted the King of Jordan, the Queen Mother of Jordan and Victoria Fitz-Gerald (nee Villiers) wife of the 28th Knight of Glin.
SIZE: canvas 36 x 32 inches.
framed 43.25 x 39 inches.
