William Hollingsworth, Jr. (American/Mississippi, 1910-1944), "Portrait of Isabel", oil on canvas, signed right center, 30 in. x 24 in., framed Provenance: Descended in the family of Nancy Currie Robinson, a close friend of the Hollingsworth family. Note: A prolific draftsman, William Hollingsworth was continuously sketching his family and friends. He painted numerous oil portraits of his family, such as the one of his sister Isabel offered here. Most noted for his watercolors, the artist's oil paintings have a much different feel. Painted in a straight-forward, realistic style, the portrait shows the tenderness Hollingsworth felt for his sister.
