[Dame Mary Gilmore With Artist Ethel Carrick, Kings Cross]

c1949. Vintage silver gelatin photograph, inscribed and annotated by Mary Gilmore to a Maurice Bourke in ink verso, 13.4 x 8.6cm. Minor soiling to left edge. Framed with facsimile of note.

Gilmore’s note reads “For Maurice Bourke. Me – taken on the balcony with the artist Mrs Phillips-Fox [a.k.a. Ethel Carrick]. The snap was made by Joshua Smith, the portrait painter, the painting was done by Glen McNiven, son of my cousin Marie McNiven, who is an artist, and perhaps I paint a little in words. Mary Gilmore, Kings Cross, 11.4.49.”

About six years earlier Joshua Smith won the 1943 Archibald Prize with his portrait of Dame Mary Gilmore.
