Locating Shanks Paintings


The location of much of the works by the Shanks' sisters is unknown.   It is believed that most paintings remained in the Soviet Union after 1917, several of these can be now be seen in museums of the ex-Soviet states.  The most useful reference sources for the Shanks' sisters  paintings are contemporary magazines and early 20th Century postcards, the of paintings of children, were particularly popular subjects for the postcards.

Do you recognise any of these Shanks paintings?    I would like to hear from you - I am preparing a index of their known works.  Please contact me at the email address below if you would like to share information about the location of any of these pictures.
