The artist and her husband enjoyed the jazz at Bristol's 'Old Duke' in King Street on Friday nights: 'Here I've painted the little old man I saw dancing drunkenly there one night. After he'd lurched into the bandstand once or twice one of the musicians calmly stepped down, took him by the arm and guided the dancing figure out of the door, never a beat missed.' It is Cook's gentle humour and close observation of contemporary life that has made her one of the most popular of British artists.
