Watkins the photographer

WR Watkins frequently photographed his models to complement his figure painting. We came across this slide taken by him in the early 1960s, part of a series from the late 50s-60s. The quality of his lighting seems very painterly, and the pose is reminiscent of a Watkins painting of a sitting blonde woman from the same period.
