Description
Heva Coomans (Belgium, 1860-1939) oil on canvas painting depicting figures in and outside a pottery studio in an ancient Mediterranean city, likely Pompeii. Signed "Heva Coomans" lower left. Housed in a carved early 20th century American style giltwood frame. Sight: 21 1/2" H x 29 1/2" W. Framed: 27 3/4" H x 35 3/4" W.

Like her father and sister, she painted romantic portrayals of the original inhabitants of Pompeii before the eruption of Vesuvius, but she is also is known for depicting young women in other mythological or heroic scenes.
