Careful Reading



The Precious Book, c.1920 by Gwen John, Private Collection.

John studied under James McNeill Whistler in Paris and at the Slade School in London where she developed her agitated style. Her brother Augustus John was also a painter and quite popular during his day, overshadowing his older sister.
