The Artist’s Estate

In 1930 Adnams started attending life classes at Derby School of Art.  Her extra ordinary facility for drawing was much remarked upon, (one teacher remarking that she ‘drew like a man, direct with no rubbing out, quoted by Ray Gosling, Marion Adnams, A Retrospective, Midland Group Gallery 1971).

1898 – 1995

Napoleon III disliked the portrait of him drawn by Gill. In December 1867, La Lune was censored. “La Lune will have to undergo an eclipse,” an authority commented to Editor Francis Polo when the ban was instituted, unwittingly dubbing Polo’s subsequent publication: L’ƒclipse, which made its first appearance on 9 August 1868. Gill would contribute caricatures to this successor of La Lune as well.
