And Miss Carter Wore Pink... The life and works of artist Helen Bradley
This site is a celebration of the life and works of Helen Bradley, the renowned artist. Born in Lees near Oldham in 1900, Helen only began to paint her distinctive scenes of an Edwardian girlhood at the age of 65.
At first she simply wanted to show her grandchildren how different a place the world used to be when she was a child.
From 1965 until her death in 1979, Helen achieved international celebrity.
In 1971 Jonathan Cape published the first of four books "And Miss Carter Wore Pink". This was an instant success.
German, French, Dutch and Japanese editions were published, and a special edition produced for the U.S.A.
Requests for illustrations of her work were satisfied by the publication of 30 Signed Limited Edition Prints,
3 Unsigned Limited Edition Prints and 11 Open Edition Prints.
