in Lees, a village outside Oldham, in 1900, Helen Bradley was over sixty when
she began painting - to show her small granddaughter what life was like when she
herself was a child.
Bradley's work is in astonishing demand "The Edwardian era was lovely, gay,
and exciting, and I love painting it", she said, "even the weather was
kinder". Her bright teeming
pictures and her delightful narrative reflect that gentle period.
The same loved characters make their appearance: three maiden aunts with
their sweeping skirts, their friend Miss Carter (who wore pink), Mr Taylor the
Bank Manager, and the dogs Gyp and Barney.
in style and idyllic in mood, Mrs Bradley's paintings are as accomplished as
they are imaginative .
