Margaret MacDonald The Silver Apples of the Moon and The Sleeping Princess (1912) Private Collection.


The Silver Apples of The Moon and Sleeping Princess by Margaret Macdonald. I’d never heard of her until I saw Sex and Sensibility on BBC4 the other night. She was married to Charles Rennie Mackintosh but apparently her work was a bit spooky for the British tastes at the time but she hugely influenced Klimt. Her gesso panels are stunning.
