Anna Zinkeisen Zodiac Calendar for Whitbread 1957


Back in may I was waxing lyrical across a number of posts about the 1930s and 40s magazine The Courier, of which I have a number of copies. One of the posts was about the sister artists Doris and Anna Zinkeisen. I was over the moon therefore to discover this very rare 1957 calendar for Whitbread painted by Anna. Each month is a zodiac sign and there is some real insight here into the correspondences of the various signs as well as some fantastic 1950s style. The Zinkeisen sisters were active from the 20s into the 60s and had commissions from Wedgwood and Cunard (their murals graced the RMS Queen Mary). Their work hangs in numerous important collections. These twelve images all appear to be the work of Anna alone.
