English painter Peter Gluck, portrayed by Romaine Brooks in Peter, A Young English Girl, in 1923 or 24, was born as Hannah Gluckstein to a wealthy and close-knit Jewish family. In 1944, Gluck moved to Chantry House in Steyning, Sussex, living with lover Edith Shackleton Heald until her death. Edith, dramatic critic and leader writer on the Evening Standard and book reviewer, had been W.B. Yeats’s close friend and possible lover. Gluck was the child of Joseph Gluckstein, whose brothers Isidore and Montague had founded J. Lyons and Co., a British coffee house and catering empire. Gluck's American-born mother, Francesca Halle, was an opera singer. One of Gluck's best-known paintings, Medallion, is a dual portrait of Gluck and Gluck's lover Nesta Obermer, inspired by a night in 1936 when they attended a Fritz Busch production of Mozart's Don Giovanni. According to Gluck's biographer Diana Souhami, "They sat in the third row and she felt the intensity of the music fused them into one person and matched their love." Gluck referred to it as the "YouWe" picture. Gluck also had a romantic relationship with the British floral designer Constance Spry (December 5, 1886 – January 3, 1960), whose work informed the artist's paintings.
Together from 1944 to 1976: 32 years.

Gluck was a British painter. She was born into a wealthy Jewish family, the child of Joseph Gluckstein, whose brothers Isidore and Montague had founded J. Lyons and Co., a British coffee house and catering empire. Gluck’s American-born mother, Francesca Halle, was an opera singer. Gluck’s brother, Sir Louis Gluckstein, was a Conservative politician. One of Gluck’s best-known paintings, “Medallion,” is a dual portrait of Gluck and Gluck’s lover Nesta Obermer, inspired by a night in 1936 when they attended a Fritz Busch production of Mozart’s “Don Giovanni.” According to Gluck’s biographer Diana Souhami, "They sat in the third row and she felt the intensity of the music fused them into one person and matched their love." Gluck referred to it as the "YouWe" picture. It was later used as the cover of a Virago Press edition of “The Well of Loneliness.” Gluck also had a romantic relationship with the British floral designer Constance Spry, whose work informed the artist’s paintings. In Gluck’s seventies, using special handmade paints supplied free by a manufacturer who had taken Gluck’s exacting standards as a challenge, Gluck returned to painting and had another well-received solo show. It was Gluck’s first since 1937, and Gluck’s last: Gluck died in 1978. Gluck’s last major work was a painting of a decomposing fish head on the beach entitled “Rage, Rage against the Dying of the Light.”
