Solomon’s richly decorated interior of the family bungalow at Birchington, Kent (where his brother-in-law Delissa Joseph, had built him a second studio) depicts his wife, Ella, and youngest daughter, Iris, in the comfortable intimacy of the breakfast room. Iris is denoted only by her hand holding the newspaper and her dangling leg with its fashionable shoe. On the wall behind a selection of paintings by Solomon includes one of his older daughter, Mary, on her horse.
