Georgina Lara Art (British, Born 1832)
A painter of farmyard and village scenes, Georgina Lara exhibited at the British Institution as well as exhibiting 16 works at Suffolk Street. Very little is known about her life. Her work is sometimes attributed to Edward Masters, whose style is very similar to her own. Lara’s work is noted for large numbers of doll-like figures included in her paintings and setting them in country and village scenes, where they are going about their daily chores and duties. As a rural idyll we might all like to emulate today, the artist’s work remains very collectible.
