House & Garden 1968 III Miss Pauline Vogelpoel at home

Back to my occasional series taken from House & Garden, March 1968.  In this case the article, by Jesse Roberts, about the flat of Pauline Voegelpoel, then Organising Secretary to the Contemporary Art Society.  She raised in South Africa, was awarded an MBE in 1962, and occasionally pops up in Sir Roy Strong's published diaries - 'everything about Pauline Vogelpoel exudes style'.  Here are a couple of obituaries of this remarkable woman: The Independent and The Guardian
Anyway the flat is wonderfully chic, I only wish there were more colour images judging by what that one glorious image.  What a wonderful room, and what a wonderful colour.  Just splendid.  The scene, I'd like think, of some literary/artistic salon.
