Agnes Miller Parker (1895 – 1980). Born in Irvine. Studied and taught at Glasgow School of Art. Known for her draughtsmanship and skillful sense of design. Parker’s work of the 1920s is influenced by the Cubist and Vorticist movements. In the early 1930s she became well-known for her distinctive woodcut illustrations produced for the Gregynog Press in Wales. Her illustrations for Aesop’s Fables were particularly celebrated, as were her sets of engravings for several Thomas Hardy novels made in the 1950s.
