Painting of Poppies by Cathleen Giles

Cathleen, the daughter of Richard & Mary Ann Prendergast was born at Greenough c1895.

She was an accomplished artist, regularly exhibiting her works in the local Agricultural Shows. Such was her talent, it has been said that Norman Lindsay wanted Cathleen to travel over east to study under him. But Cathleen was a devout Catholic and her high morals did not approve of painting nudes.

She remained here and married Roy James Giles in 1926 (about the time when this picture was painted).

The painting was later given to Monica Clune and hung in her house at Bringo (Donated by Chris Clune 2021/072)
