Arts : Sylvia Pankhurst paintings of women at work acquired for the Tate Britain

Four watercolours of working women by suffragette and human rights campaigner Sylvia Pankhurst, painted in 1907 as she was documenting the working conditions of women in the UK. The paintings have been acquired by Tate using funds from the billionaire Denise Coates (best paid person in the world in 2018 -3 times more than CEO of Apple).
