Margaret Fisher Prout (1875-1963)

Painter of landscape, flowers and figures in an impressionist style.

Born 31 March 1875 in Chelsea, London, daughter of Mark Fisher, the painter. Studied under him and later at the Slade School 1894–7. Married John Alexander Prout 1908. Exhibited at the N.E.A.C. from 1906, member 1925; and at the R.A. from 1921, A.R.A. 1948; R.W.S. 1945. Taught drawing at the Hammersmith School of Arts and Crafts before 1914. One-man exhibition at the Beaux Arts Gallery 1922. Lived at St Leonards-on-Sea, where she died 9 December 1963.

 

Margaret Fisher Prout had a keen interest in flower gardens and often painted outside, influenced by her father's commitment to plein-air painting. Like her father Prout always strove to create an atmosphere of light and colour by the most economical means. In Midsummer she evokes the soporific heat of a summer day to great effect.
