Mrs. Frances Byng Stamper (left) and her sister Miss Caroline Byng Lucas were important supporters of the visual arts in Wales in the 1930s. Morris’s portraits are known for their unflinching scrutiny of character. Not surprisingly the sisters were said to be unhappy with this unflattering portrait. When Morris exhibited the painting in 1979 he called it The English Upper Classes

I love this painting it's so powerful and dramatic and the colours very intense.
