Note: Agnes Miller Parker was born in Irvine, Ayrshire and studied at Glasgow School of Art. She later taught at the School before marrying fellow student William McCance. The couple moved to London in 1920. Parker’s work of the 1920s is influenced by the Cubist and Vorticist movements. In the early 1930s she became well-known for her distinctive woodcut illustrations produced for the Gregynog Press in Wales. Her illustrations for Aesop’s Fables were particularly celebrated, as were her sets of engravings for several Thomas Hardy novels made in the 1950s.
