The Burleighs - the distaff side.

The current exhibition  "Women Artists" in Brighton Museum Fine Art Gallery includes two paintings from the Burleigh family of 7 Wilbury Crescent, Hove.

'Washerwomen' by Averil (Mrs.) Burleigh

'Self-portrait with artist's parents' by Veronica Burleigh

7 Wilbury Crescent
They were truly local artists. Charles went to the Brighton School of Art, and apart from a period in Paris studying under Jacques-Emile Blanche, lived at 7 Wilbury Crescent for over 50 years until his death in 1956. Averil his wife had died in 1949. Veronica was still occupying no.7 up until 1966.


  1. Those are terrific...and the clue at no 7 is the artists lights in the roof...

  2. On Google Earth you can see that the rear roof slope is also glazed, :)
