Marion Wallace Dunlop

ARTIST

Wallace Dunlop, Marion

1864 – 1942

Marion Wallace-Dunlop was a portrait painter, figurative artist,
illustrator and ardent feminist. While studying at the Slade
School of Fine Art, recognition of her talent resulted in the
commissioning, (in 1899), of two illustrated books: Fairies, Elves
and Flower Babies
and The Magic Fruit Garden. She exhibited
with the Paris Salon, the RA (1903, 1905, 1906) and the RGI
(1903). 

Fiercely devoted to the fight for women’s rights, she
dedicated much of her career, and life, to the suffrage movement.
After joining the Women’s Social and Political Union in 1908 she
was soon arrested for ‘obstruction’, and was the first suffragette to
go on hunger strike while imprisoned in 1909. She also directed
the creation of banners, tapestries and prints to call for women’s
right to vote, particularly the ‘Women’s Coronation Procession’
in 1911.
