Marion Gill (1879-1959) - "Cape Sunset", Coloured Woodblock, dating from the 1930's, bearing monogram and signed in pencil (under the mount), within original textured frame in the Japanese taste with circular mon type symbol at each corner.
Gill exhibited widely, including the Royal Scottish Academy, The Paris Salon, the Society of Graver Printers and the Colour Woodcut Society, beside various annual exhibitions in South Africa where she lived from 1925 to 1957. In March 1933, she held a very successful solo exhibition in Cape Town. Although predominately a printmaker, she also worked in oils, pastels, watercolour and chalk, producing landscapes as well as architectural and flower studies in these media. She worked at the South Africa Museum in Cape Town with her brother Dr. Leonard Gill and died in the U.K. in 1959. http://www.sahistory.org.za/people/marion-gill
