Fine Art Society, March 1925, no 6
Burleigh held a one-woman exhibition of watercolours at the Fine Art Society in 1925, which featured pictures of her daughter Veronica modelling exotic dances against fanciful backdrops of the medieval town of Falaise in Calvados. This one is likely to have been no 6, The Dancer. The exhibition was reviewed by The Sphere: ‘The subject matter of her recent work has largely turned towards catching the rhythmic action of certain dances, her medium being water-colour, handled with a colourful, vigorous technique’.
