I have been obsessed with this image since I saw it in the National Portrait Gallery shop a few months ago.
Isn't it just marvellous and full of grace, beauty, cheekiness? Maybe even a soupçon of devil-may-care...
The caption reads "Betty Lindley by Bassano, 1914"
I have been looking for some info about the luminous Ms Lindley, but haven't found anything. One entry on the movie database IMDb lists a Betty Lindley as having appeared in a 1920 movie, "Duds". And that's about it!
I now have that beautiful picture, framed, on my wall. It will be a great source of inspiration when I work on my books...
For some more pictures of the delicately beautiful Ms Lindley, go to the National Portrait Gallery Collection HERE.
I think therefore I write.
