Here we have an original oil on paper painting by renowned West Country artist and member of The Newlyn Society Elizabeth Hunter (British b.1935).

Titled to verso "woman in a doorway" the redheaded woman stands central to the picture gazing directly forward whilst the alternating use of red and black in the colour pallet give the affect of an advancing corridor ahead.

Signed and framed in a wooden, lime-washed frame.
