Margaret Lilian Flockton (1861–1953)

The death has occurred at the age of 92 of Margaret Lillian Flockton, who was well known for many years as a watercolour artist.

Miss Flockton, who was born in England, came to Australia at 19 and for 40 years was the official artist for the Sydney Botanic Gardens.

She produced many water colour pictures of still life and illustrated the books of a former curator, J. H. Maiden.

She was a member of the Royal Art Society and frequently exhibited pictures at its shows.

Miss Flockton also gained a reputation as a lithographic artist in the early days, when she was Australia's only woman exponent of the art.
