1921+Winifred+Radford This 1921 painting is at the National Portrait Gallery. We used it in the 2011-12 Persephone catalogue to illustrate Midsummer Night in the Workhouse (the catalogue is sent free of charge, or you can pick it up in the shop, or you'll find the pdf on our home page, the link at the bottom of the page on the left). It's the singer Winifred Radford and she looks like Diana Athill, we thought. Here is a photograph of Meredith Frampton in 1982, surely the woman on the left is Winifred Radford, in which case the comment yesterday that Marguerite Kelsey was the only living sitter was wrong. Or is it Mrs Frampton? (Megan Wilson used the painting for the cover of The Painted Veil here, scroll down the second page)
