Synopsis
Margaret Gillies, a Scottish painter who worked in London as a miniaturist and later as a specialist in larger subject pictures has been a fairly neglected figure in 19th-century art history. Unitarian in belief, her highly-motivated work provides a unique example of this ethos in the fine arts. Including 40 pages of illustrations and portraits, this text explores how the nature of her work, her feminism, professionalism and unconventional lifestyle were all grounded in Unitarianism.
