The artist (SEE also Muriel COLDWELL) is noticed as an exhibitor from 1903-5 both at Birmingham and the Society of Women Artists. Her address was in Shrewsbury, Shopshire. (J&G)
Iris Green records that this is the same M Burgess who attended the FORBES SCHOOL of Painting in 1936/7. She was the wife of Arthur James Weatherall BURGESS. Photos of the two artists are included in Tovey (2009, p239), and the correspondence between the pair before their marriage provide rare insights into the student life of the St Ives Art Colony (p245, etc.).
