Beryl Cook was a British artist, known for her popular paintings of flamboyant XXL-size ladies, drinking, flirting, dancing, or just going about life with a twinkle in their eyes.

The art establishment of her generation frowned upon her work, possibly because they were about women of girth, dressed gaudily, singing and swaying with abandon.
