A very typical illustration by the famous Scottish illustrator Jessie M King (1875-1949). Against the norms of her time, King managed to get a good education at the Glasgow School of Art in the 1890s and had a long and successful career - becoming part of the important artistic community centred around Kirkcudbright. Amongst other things, King saw it has her mission to inspire other women to believe in their creativity and ability to pursue careers in the art world. Green Gate Close, where she lived, became an important centre for women artists.
