Betty Moore (20th c)

Betty and her well-known sister Midge Bruford had a mutual friend in Elizabeth "Mornie" Birch, who she and Midge studied with at Badminton House in Clifton, Bristol. Midge began her art training at the Forbes School in the early 1920s, with the informal tuition of Lamorna Birch, and spent time thereafter in Paris. She remained active in Lamorna, St Ives and Newlyn artistic circles until 1955, and lived variously in Paul Village, Newlyn and Truro from 1924-1955. Primarily she painted portraits and landscapes. Little is known about Betty, but she is known to have painted in the same Lamorna circle as her sister and Mornie Birch.
