Beryl Cook

British painter known for humorous depictions of everyday life


Beryl Cook (1926-2008) was a British painter known for her distinctive, naive style and her depictions of people enjoying themselves in everyday situations. Cook's work often featured large, exuberant figures in a variety of settings, including pubs, clubs, and streetscapes. Her paintings are characterized by their bright colors, bold outlines, and a sense of humor. Cook was self-taught and did not begin painting until her late 30s, but she quickly gained popularity for her accessible and relatable subject matter. Her work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including at the Portal Gallery in London, which represented her for many years. Cook's paintings are held in private and public collections, including the Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery. Despite her commercial success, Cook was not widely accepted by the art establishment during her lifetime, but she has since been recognized as an important British folk artist. Her work continues to be celebrated for its joyful celebration of ordinary life and its ability to connect with a wide audience.
