Perinchief, Violet Keene. 1893-1967.
Original photograph, Eastern Beauty. A portrait of a Chinese Lady, silver gelatin print, 485 x 362 mm, mounted on exhibition board, [Toronto: c.1933,] signed lower left in pencil by Violet, board slightly discolored, small crack at lower right corner.

A fine large exhibition-sized print of one of the many portraits that Violet became famous for. She established and ran a studio in Toronto for her mother's work from 1933, and later a studio for her own photography. She studied photography under her mother's guidance from an early age, and this portrait has many of the classic Minna Keene attributes of her portraits taken in Cape Town around 1910, notably the floral background and position of the face looking away from the camera. Violet exhibited her work around the world and had a loyal following.
