Margaret MacDonald

Her husband, architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh, by whose fame she was overshadowed throughout her career, said about her "Margaret has genius, I have only talent."

A biography of the artist (1865 - 1933) can be read here:

And a collection of her work, a lot of it unpublished in her own lifetime, can be seen at the Mackintosh online guide of the Hunterian Art Gallery.

The images below are a sketch for the "Vanity handkerchief" from circa 1898 (top); and two pages from "The Christmas Story" circa 1895-6 (middle and bottom).
