Margaret Souttar (1914 – 1987)
Souttar was a Scottish painter and printmaker known for her images of town- and cityscapes. In the early 1960s, she was commissioned to produce a series of prints of the Cambridge colleges. She captures the modernity and optimism of 1960s Cambridge; the fact that a female artist was commissioned to create the prints reflects the changing attitudes of the University towards women. These views highlight the layers of history and architectural styles which make up a Cambridge college.
