Beryl Cook recorded human frailties and the absurdities of human behaviour with her own unique vision. Beryl’s personality though was in great contrast to her paintings. She was a shy and private person, often depicting the flamboyant and extrovert characters she would love to have been. She preferred to observe a crowd of people, her acute eye missing nothing. She recorded in minute detail scenes of everyday life and had an almost photographic memory. MEDIUM: Oil on canvas DIMENSIONS: (unframed) 38.2 x 29.7 ins/ 97.0 x 75.4 cm SIGNATURE: Signed 'B.
