Robert Eagle Fine Art

Young woman viewed from three different angles (aka Sisters)
David Rolt

One of David Rolt's best early works, painted when he was 23 years old.

Are they three sisters - or is this an unusual triple portrait of the same woman? 

In the absence of a title from the artist, we plump for Sisters.

But whether it's three young women or just one, we still have no clue about her identity. The faces suggest strong character, so maybe someone will remember her. For more on David Rolt's unidentified portrait subjects take a look at the Name the mystery sitter feature in our News section
