Just who is Betty Lindley?
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.

How strange... If I have time I'll try and find more about her. There must be something out there... She would be a great character for a book! :-)

I've just bought a print of this from the Nat Portrait Gallery and have been trying to find out who she is. I've also fallen in love with her. Have you found out any more?
