Lina Bryans Richmond

Lina Bryans met a lovely architect Alex Jelinek in the 1950s and found a really large house at 39 Erin Street, Richmond.

Jelinek took this great shot of Lina doing her thing. Lina is painting a portrait of Brita Sievers, the wife of photographer Wolfgang Sievers.

Architect Alex popped a sympathetic new extension onto Bryans’ entertaining mansion in Richmond. Isn’t that fireplace beautiful?

Finally here is the very supportive, independent, intelligent, and talented 86-year-old Lina.
