Product Description

A beautiful early 20th century pencil and chalk portrait picture attributed to be of Esther Margaret Killick when she was 10 – 12 years old.

The picture is well executed showing the head and shoulder portrait of a pretty young girl, with striking blue eyes. The portrait has been set in an oval mount, framed in gilded wood and glazed. Condition is very good, with just a couple of small blemishes.

The picture was bought with the attribution. Fortunately, there is a photograph of Esther Margaret Killick in the National Portrait Gallery, in London. Despite their difference in age the two images bear a striking resemblance.

Esther Margaret Killick (1902–1960), was a physiologist, born in Ilford, Essex. She is known for her ground-breaking research into respiratory physiology, in particular the effects of Carbon monoxide poisoning in mines. Her work involved putting her own life in danger in experiencing monoxide poisoning.
