CICELY HEY (1896-1980)

Hey studied at the Brussels School of Art, Central Schools and the Slade. In 1922 she met Sickert at a Roger Fry lecture and the two became friends, Sickert painting her many times during the 20s. In 1924 Hey married Robert Tatlock, Editor of the Burlington Magazine, and the two shared a house with ‘Bunny’ Garnett and his wife ‘Ray’ Marshall (Cf. No.57). In 1941 Hey moved to North Wales where she modeled figures in historical costume. There is a very good piece on her by Alison Bennett, written for the Burlington Magazine Index Blog (CLICK HERE)
