A Portrait of Phiroz

By The Editor

The writer and researcher Dr. Richard Shillitoe recently came upon a portrait of Phiroz in the Ferens Art Gallery, Kingston-upon-Hull.

It is the work of Ithell Colquhoun (1906–1988), who was well-known as a painter, poet and author, her work being associated with Surrealism in the 1930s. Her paintings were exhibited in major art galleries and the Tate Gallery has acquired a large body of her artwork.

Ithell Colquhoun was deeply interested in the occult and undertook a great deal of research. It is probable that she met Phiroz at the Quest Society, founded by G. R. S. Mead, the writer and theosophist.

The portrait was painted in 1932, and is a good likeness of Phiroz as a young man.
