Pericles by Agnes Miller Parker

Agnes Miller Parker
Date: 1959
Edition Number: Artist’s Poof
Signature: Signed, numbered, dated and titled in pencil by the artist.

Agnes Miller Parker (1895–1980) was a Scottish engraver, illustrator and painter in oil and tempera. She is particularly well-known for her wood engravings and a number are held by National Galleries Scotland.

Miller Parker is especially known as a wood-engraver thanks to her many illustrations of tales, fables and historical narratives. She worked with H. E. Bates, which resulted in two outstanding wood engraved books: Through the Woods (1936) and Down the River (1937), published by Victor Gollancz.

This wood engraving from 1959 entitled Pericles shows a scene of the Greek politician reunited with his daughter following many years apart (The RSC website has a concise summary of the Shakespeare adaptation of the Pericles story). This is likely to be one of a number of wood engravings illustrating Shakespearian Tragedies, that Miller Parker produced in 1959 for the Limited Editions Club of New York.
