Doris and Anna Zinkeisen
Sisters, Doris and Anna were both prominent 20th century
artists. Both Anna and Doris worked as official war
artists during the Second World War and, as volunteers of
St John Ambulance, also nursed war casualties.
Doris created a diorama as a travelling
exhibition to raise funds for the Joint War Organisation although
this is now lost!
In the 1950s, Anna completed two notable portraits for
St John Ambulance, which were used in publicity campaigns.
These paintings now hang in the St John Ambulance Gallery in the
