The art work of Helene de Beauvoir

Helene de Beauvoir was the artist sister of Simone, her work

The colourful images that I viewed in Regensberg Germany were very much in the realm of the art of the 1930s, pale pastel colours and cubist images, Working at the time of Spencer, Nicholson, Ivan Hitchens the abstract techniques of this ra show through her pictures. However I found the very pale pastel colours too sickly and many of the images too indistinct and the compositions too open, in this manner her work reminded me of Helen Frankenthaler’s.
