Paul Tanqueray: Portrait of Ethel Mannin, 1930. Mannin was a British writer, politically active, and in the 1930's was prominent in anti-imperialist activity on behalf of African nations. She stated her "opposition to capital punishment, orthodox education and blood sports." She supported the Republicans against Franco, but was a pacifist during WWII. Fascinating woman who lived a long life and published on many topics, including seven memoirs.
