Brenda Chamberlain (artist)
Brenda Chamberlain (1912–1971) was a Welsh artist and poet.
Born in Bangor, Wales, she studied art at the Royal Academy in London, but simultaneously developed an interest in poetry. Just before the Second World War, she moved in with artist John Petts, and together they set up the Caseg Press at their home. Chamberlain also produced prose works, including a novel and a memoir of life on Bardsey Island, where she lived from 1947. In 1961 she went to live on a Greek island, but later returned to Wales.
Famous quotes containing the word chamberlain:
“This morning the British Ambassador in Berlin handed the German Government a final Note stating that, unless we heard from them by 11 oclock that they were prepared at once to withdraw their troops from Poland, a state of war would exist between us. I have to tell you now that no such undertaking has been received, and that consequently this country is at war with Germany.”
—Neville Chamberlain (18691940)
