The daughter of a Portsmouth boat builder, Vera Brookman was a student at the Royal Academy Schools at Burlington House and lived in Chelsea at the time. In 1931 and 1932 she won silver medals for her exhibits in the annual exhibition of students’ works and her entry in 1932 was a painting of her younger sister Nita. She was then awarded a two-year scholarship by the The British Institution which was worth £75 a year to her and whilst she was a little-known painter of landscapes and portraits one of her better known works, Windibanks Farm, was exhibited at Heal’s Gallery in Tottenham Court Road in 1946. At the time of the 1948 Olympic Games, she had moved to Knebworth in Hertfordshire and later moved to the new town of Welwyn Garden City where she died in 1964. She remained unmarried all her life, as did her sister Nita.
