Edward Burra – The Snack Bar (1930)

The above is one of the famous paintings by modernist artist Edward Burra, which caught my eye in London’s Tate Modern.  Burra was drawn to scenes of  city life and unashamed of bad taste.

The Snack Bar (1930), depicts a heavily made Soho French prostitute, wolfing down a sandwich in the  Continental Snack Bar in Shaftesbury Avenue. “handy for ladies on the game to have a sit down and a cup of tea in their rest periods.”

Marguerite Kelsey by Meredith Frampton 1928

One of many paintings I saw in London’s Tate Modern. I love my Art.

“A professional artist”s model in the 1920s and 1930s, Marguerite Kelsey (1908?-1995) was renowned for her gracefulness and ability to hold poses for a long time. Her dress and shoes were chosen and purchased by Frampton for this portrait. ”

“They are both classical and, being uncorseted, deliberately modern. The simple, short-sleeved pale tunic dress worn with low-heeled shoes and her straight hair were all essential elements of the fashionable ”garçonne style” created by the couturiers Coco Chanel and Jean Patou from the mid-1920s.”
