Agnes Hope Joseph (British, 1879 – 1936): Auray Harbour, Brittany (c. 1900) (via 1stdibs)

From the auction house website:

Agnes Hope was born in India and had British parents. She travelled extensively and lived at various times in Zennor and Paul in West Cornwall, in Paris and Angiers in France as well as London and Ashstead, Surrey in Britain. She studied at the Forbes School and at NAG in 1903, but moved to France where she was to spend much of her time. Hope painted landscapes, still-lives and harbour scenes in a delicate pointillist technique that was influenced by the work of Seurat and Signac. Her work was shown at the Salon des Indépendants from 1905 onwards.

pintoras:

María Blanchard (Spanish, 1881 – 1932): The two sisters (Les deux sœurs) (1922) (via Abanca Colección de Arte)

From the Colección de Arte website (translation mine):

Les deux sœurs is a clear example of Blanchard’s figurative period in the 1920s. It has all the qualities of this period: it is a figurative painting, but built with a clearly geometric composition. […] The way in which the two figures embrace each other, the clothing, the modified perspective of the table, the treatment of the far side of the room cannot be dissociated from Cubism, although the work already belongs to a new aesthetic developed by the artist.

Les deux sœurs was one of the artist’s favourite paintings. She told her friend Jean Delgoufre of her sadness when Jean Grimar acquired it, a sadness which did not cease until she was finally able to buy it back, years later, in spite of the economic problems she suffered from during most of her life.
