Hamnett is now best remembered as the ‘Queen’ of bohemian London. During the 1930s and 1940s she was a well-known character in the pubs and bars of Fitzrovia, regaling fellow bohemians with stories and anecdotes in exchange for a drink. During the early twentieth century, however, Hamnett was a promising young artist, exhibiting her work with the Allied Artists’ Association, the New English Art Club and the London Group.(www.tate.org.uk)

The Art & Coffee Mornings at Barchester Care’s Southgate Beaumont are run by Dr ML Banting in collaboration with the activities team on site and open to anyone – residents and non-residents – with an interest in art history and visual culture.
