DES MACNAIR, Frances Macdonald; (English; 1863-1921)
beaten lead with mirror glass on a wood frame

s.d. b.l. "FRANCES MACNAIR. 1921"
In this late design, Frances MacNair returned to a format she had successfully developed in the 1890s: the decorative metal frame. The imagery of sleep and silence had been recurrent themes in her work. This is her last recorded work.
