Description  
Holder`s forte was his depiction of Caribbean women. In the 1960s there were many black people who did not see themselves as beautiful, but Boscoe did and his paintings encapsulated this before the phrase `Black is Beautiful` was coined. The artist loved exotic people and he chose the girl`s hat, earrings and dress to act as a frame for her strong, expressive face. The colours of the material offset against the wonderful pink background illustrates what a great eye Holder had for colour, shape and passion.
