This painting has a strange history. Duffy Ayers, the artist who painted the portrait of Tirzah Garwood that is on the front of the current Biannually, painted herself, or her twin sister, in the 1950s (she was then Duffy Rothenstein). But she threw the painting away (perhaps she was dissatisfied with it) and it was literally rescued from the wastepaper basket by the babysitter, Mrs Perkins. Her son Don Perkins gave it to the Great Bardfield Historical Society in 2011.
