Portrait of Jessie M. King

About this artwork

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. 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. Here she is shown in a pink dress and white shawl looking out of a window. Brown has used watercolour, ink and black chalk to create a lively study of her friend.
