Stanley Cursiter's Early 1920s Women

Stanley Cursiter (1887-1976) was a Scottish painter who was Keeper of the National Galleries of Scotland from 1930 until 1948. I wrote about him here, and his Wikipedia entry is here.

During the first half of the 1920s he painted several works featuring attractive young women, especially one named Poppy Low.
