Portrait of the week – Betty Lindley


Betty Lindley, Bassano Studio, 1914, National Portrait Gallery. Crappy camera phone photo: Melanie Clegg

I bought this print from the National Portrait Gallery a few weeks ago and it’s been living on the dresser in my dining room ever since. Isn’t she ace?

Apparently the photograph is of an actress called Betty Lindley, but I don’t actually know anything more about her than this, which is fine as I think the image speaks volumes about the sort of lady she was. In other words she was clearly my sort of gal.

It’s been one HELL of a week and I think this photograph MORE than adequately expresses my extreme and utterly HEARTFELT relief to have made it through to Friday in more or less one piece.

Happy weekend, chums!
