Two Cinema Seats 1960’s
On show for the first time these Cinema seats were featured in the Beryl Cook Retrospective
Exhibition at Plymouth University in 2008.
The Lockyer Tavern 1974
This was Beryl and John’s local for many years. There would be drag shows on a Sunday which much amused the Cooks, unfortunately it eventually closed down. The painting brought Beryl to the attention of the British public when it was reproduced on the cover of The Sunday Times Colour Supplement in 1978.
Coney Island 1983
This painting was inspired by one of Beryl Cook’s trips to New York to research paintings for her book ‘Beryl Cook’s New York’
The Royal Couple 2002
We received an acknowledgement from Buckingham Palace that the Queen had seen and appreciated the portrait, we don’t know what the Corgi thought.
