A Bowl of Flowers

Margaret Gere (1878–1965)

The Wilson

Painter, notably in tempera, born in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. She was the sister of the artist Charles March Gere, studied under him from 1897 at Birmingham School of Art and like him was an original member of the Birmingham Group of Painters and Craftsmen. The copying of Piero della Francesca in tempera in Florence in 1901 had a marked effect on her work, and she further studied at Slade School of Fine Art, 1905.
