Dora Gordine, Lady of Java, 1930-35, oil on canvas

This painting was completed in the early 1930s when Gordine was living and working in Johor and Singapore and travelling extensively in Asia. In 1934, Richard Hare reported to a friend that Gordine had begun ‘painting seriously’ and had become ‘deeply absorbed in it’.
