There are few works by Marjorie Sherlock in public collections in this country although she deserves to be better known. She was an artist of great promise who had studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, the Royal College of Art and later in Paris. She was also a fine etcher and exhibited at the Royal Academy for over 50 years, but she never had a solo show. After travelling widely she moved to Axminster in Devon to spend the last 30 years of her life in frugal isolation.
