Dunbar’s older sisters, Jessie and Marjorie, occasionally modelled for her. Dressed in the very full coat and flared trousers of the period, Marjorie is rather despondently pulling a garden roller to provide her younger sister with an image that became one of many vignettes decorating Gardeners’ Choice, a book written and illustrated by Evelyn Dunbar and Cyril ‘Charles’ Mahoney, which appeared in 1937. The instruction ‘reduce to 2 1/3’ is for the printer.

We are grateful to Christopher Campbell-Howes, author of Evelyn Dunbar: A Life in Painting, Romarin, 2016
