  • Scottish Art
Jessie Marion King was a pupil at Glasgow School of Art at the same time as Helen Paxton Brown and the two became lifelong friends. This portrait is probably from around 1915 and shows King wearing a silken scarf. King was one of the most commercially successful designers to emerge from Glasgow at this time and she sold some of her fabric designs to the famous English firm, Liberty.
