  • Description

    Norwich, Norfolk.

    Various shots show Mrs Daysi Brookes (yes, that is the correct spelling!) at work painting a miniature portrait in her garden; this one is of John Heddle Nash (operatic singer). She paints on ivory, looking through a magnifying glass to paint in detail. We see C/Us of several finished portraits in frames, including those of Russian dancer Tamara Tchinarova and Benjamin Britten.

    Note: there are brief notes about Daysi on file.
