Portrait of Blanche Behrmann


oil on canvas

Blanche Behrmann was the wife of Cecil G. Behrmann, the prominent mid-century art collector, art patron, and property developer (among other prime sites, Behrmann was responsible for Hyde Park Corner in 1969). He would have commissioned this portrait of his then thirty-one year old wife directly from the artist.
