Lot 310: Clara Klinghoffer (British, 1900-1972): Portrait of a lady reading, oil on canvas, signed lower right & dated December 1930, H 71 x W 51 cm, labelled & stencilled verso. Note: A poor and utterly known girl from the East End, Klinghoffer rose to prominence at a young age when her first exhibition at the Hampstead Gallery took the artistic world by storm in 1919. She studied at the Slade from 1918 to 1919 and her work was much admired by her many mentors such as Bernard Meninsky, Alfred Wolmark and Sir Jacob Epstein who recommended her to the gallery.
