I have spent several days with fellow alums and Barbara Bradley's daughters slowly going through the contents of her studio. In stark contrast to the two alums' studios featured earlier, here is her palette, and taboret, which followed her out from her days at Cooper Studios! Her last rinse of the watercolor brush was still in the jar and was awaiting her return. So silent and sad. So amazing and miraculous, though, was opening drawers full of drawings, paintings, and watercolors on par with the best anywhere. I hope that there will be exhibitions and books out as she was a prodigious producer and the work must be seen. I imagine her, arriving upstairs, and having Al Parker take off his hat to her!
