British-American socialite and artist. Lady Brett was raised in polite society and defied convention by taking four years of art school. She first met D.H. Lawrence in 1915. They met again eight years later in London, where she had a studio. They traveled in the same circles and began an affair; she moved to Taos with him and his wife, Frieda, in 1924.

Brett fell in love with Taos and lived her life there, developing new art techniques to paint the Indians and their ceremonies. She wrote "Lawrence and Brett" in 1933. Though she never married, during her life she had two grand affairs, one with Lawrence and one with Stokowski. In her later years, Brett was nearly deaf and was forced to carry an ear trumpet. She died in August 1977 in Taos, NM; she was 93.
