A 1944 portrait of Tirzah Garwood that will be on the front cover of the next Persephone Biannually in October – the month we publish Tirzah’s autobiography Long Live Great Bardfield. It was painted by Duffy Ayers (b. 1915) and on Friday we had a the great pleasure of going to tea with Duffy in her Georgian house round the corner from the shop: this week on the Post we celebrate her life and work. (The painting was on the Persephone Post on December 31st 2014 – but one can’t see it too often.)
