Mabel Hill - Catalogue

Notes on the information given for individual works

General

For many of the works we have brought together bits of information from different sources where there is a high, or at least a reasonable, probability that they refer to the same work. Many records are, therefore, synthetic they contain several pieces of information that are not necessarily connected but which we believe ought to be. In time, some of these connections may turn out to be mistaken.

Title

If there is good reason to believe that the title is the one given to the work by Mabel Hill herself, it is in double quotemarks.

Year

This is normally the earliest of (where they exist): the year a work is known to have been started as evidenced by, for example, a diary entry, or knowledge of where MH was at a particular time; the year on the picture itself; and the year of the first record of its exhibition. For example, she only painted in Woodbridge, Suffolk, in the summer of 1934, so any painting of Woodbridge, whatever it may say on it, is attributed to 1934. In all cases the reason for the dating is made clear, implicitly or explicitly. In some cases the date is admittedly somewhat speculative, in which case it is followed by "p" ("postulated") or "c" ("circa"); "c" only if the range of possibilities is no more than one year on either side of the one chosen.
At the end of the sequence there are works of which the date is more uncertain. Year ranges are followed by "p" or in the worst cases there is simply a question mark.

Images

The images come from a wide variety of sources and vary considerably in size and quality. We are most grateful to all those who have provided them.

Size

For framed pictures this is the sight size, otherwise it is the paper size.

Signature

A work is described as being signed if a signature (including just initials) is visible. It may be that in some cases a signature is hidden by a mount or by a frame.
