Back to Helen Binyon, a marvellous artist but the cause of so much (measured) distress to Tirzah; in 1937 she and Eric thought of separating because of Helen. It’s painful to read of Tirzah ‘wavering between strength and despair’. But through all this she looked after the children, cooked and cleaned, and did her decorated papers, waiting, presumably, for the day when she could become a full-time artist. And Helen, too, went on working hard at all her artistic endeavours. This is The Flower Show 1939 (by which time she and Eric were no longer together and she was in love with John Nash).
