Doris Zinkeisen was born in Scotland and studied at the Harrow School of Art before winning a scholarship to study at the Royal Academy in London. Her paintings were exhibited in Paris and London. From 1941, she designed costumes and sets for The International Ballet Company, established by choreographer and dancer Mona Inlesby. Her ballet paintings were influenced by Edgar Degas and her ballet paintings are held in museums in Cardiff and in Newport.

Having lived and worked in London for over 30 years, we are now based in Dorset. We buy and sell fine paintings and watercolours from 1860 to 1960. We do not have a gallery in Dorset but we exhibit and sell at major art fairs in London. See our Exhibitions page for details of forthcoming events. Outside these dates, appointments or visits can be arranged. We are members of BADA and also members of LAPADA, the largest association of professional art and antique dealers in the UK.
