ARTIST

Zinkeisen, Doris

1898 – 1991

Doris Zinkeisen won a scholarship to the Royal Academy Schools

in 1917, where she quickly earned critical acclaim. Shrugging

off the outcry surrounding the inclusion of women students in

the 1921 RA Summer Exhibition, she embarked on a prestigious

career and received many notable commissions, such as stage

design work for Charles B. Cochran in the 1930s and murals for

the RMS Queen Mary. 

 She also exhibited in the US, Paris and London, including

at the ROI ‘ to which she was elected in 1928. In 1938, she

published Designing for the Stage

 During WWII, Zinkeisen was employed by the British Red

Cross to record their activities in Europe. Her harrowing painting

Human Laundry, Belsen: April 1945 ‘ a lasting testament to

the horrors of WW2 ‘ stands in stark contract to the vibrant

compositions she produced both before and after the war.
