Forks and Faces

Recent posts return me to the topic of Brookner's last years. There are few public-domain pictures of her in old age. This is the latest one I know, from about ten years ago. She is seen attending the Courtauld's 75th anniversary reception, where she was treated as a guest of honour. The contrast between Brookner - still elegant, dandyish, soignee - and her homelier English peers is very striking.
