Florence Pash

Florence Pash

Post by Karen on Fri 24 Jun 2011 - 1:22


In Melvyn Fairclough's book, "The Ripper and the Royals," it is mentioned that a woman named Florence Pash was a friend of Mary Jane Kelly. I have found only one reference of her in a newspaper article. Also, notice other familiar names, which I have highlighted:

There are comparatively few subject pictures in the exhibition, and these are for the greater part contributed by women artists. Mr. Henry Tonks has a pretty and refined little canvas in which he again exploits a lady gowned in the period of 1830, but he has made the inartistic mistake of giving this work the title, "A Message from the Veldt." Miss Ethel Walker is to be congratulated on the reticence of her colour scheme in "The Manuscript," wherein she gives us a variant of her last year's picture, and Miss Florence Pash has one of her very alive studies of juvenility in a white-coated youngster called "Baby." Miss C.L. Christian has not yet succeeded in finding herself, and her work is less individual this year then last, and this is the more a pity, as she is sensitive to colour, and is quick to see a good effect. Mr. Ernest Oppler's "Interieur" is rather too heavy and sticky in colour to be quite successful, but the lighting is good, and there is distinct cleverness in his slight "Portrait of Miss Vaughan," a water-colour drawing which only gives you a blurred impression of his lady, but none the less a pleasant impression. It is distinctly curious to find works by Mr. Holman Hunt in this gallery, but he is the invited guest of the Club, this year, and he shows his marvellously minute "Portrait of Dante G. Rossetti," and with it a much later work entitled, "The Importunate Neighbour," wherein the feeling is as strongly Pre-Raphaelite as ever.

The end wall is, as usual, given up to a collection of water-colour drawings, etchings, and pencil studies. Here we happen upon some of Mr. Brabazon's swift and sure impressions, some of Mr. Francis James's delightful flower studies, and from him also comes a little drawing of "Hastings," as sensitive and convincing an impression of tossing sea and moisture laden atmosphere as it would be possible to put on paper. Mr. A.W. Rich, Sir William Eden, Mr. C.T. Stabb, and Mr. Bernhard Sickert are amongst the water-colourists, and Mr. M. Bone shows two remarkably vigorous etchings in "Ship Smiths - Glasgow" and "Mike."

Note: Is Bernhard Sickert an alias of Walter's or is it another son of his?
