Historical Portrait Silhouettes
Phyllis Arnold, as well as being noted for Portrait Silhouettes of living sitters, is also well known for many Historical and Decorative Silhouettes that have graced spheres of literary, historical and commemorative interest.
Many of the great English literary figures have been recreated by her artistic talent --Wordsworth, Ruskin, Dickens to name but a few. These have taken the form of either stand alone portraits or bound into select literary or poetical volumes. These fine enhanced bindings are now eagerly collected. With regard to commemorative works, her silhouette portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, was a familiar sight when it was chosen to enhance a number of fine limited edition porcelain commemorative pieces issued by Coalport Porcelain to mark the Silver Jubilee.
