Born in Britain in 1879, Margaret Hickson was a popular and prolific watercolour and oil. Margaret Hicksnon is most renowned for picturesque landscapes and rustic genre scenes depicting children in rural settings and in farmlands.

Pastoral river scenes and paintings of children enjoying the delights of nature became increasingly popular in the latter part of the nineteenth-century as the industrialisation of the Victorian period gave rise to polluted, overcrowded cities and there was a growing nostalgia for the simplicity of life in the country and the imagined blissful state of childhood. Hickson continued the traditions of the artists of the Victorian period in to the early twentieth century, and perfectly captured idyllic scenes throughout her oeuvre. Hickson’s talent for observation enabled her to capture the quintessential English countryside, with carefully depicted trees and wild flowers providing a beautiful setting for children playing outdoors.
