Margaret Prout
- Favourite Briton.

Born in Chelsea, London
Born on 31st of March 1875
Died on 9th of December 1963

She is, however, probably best remembered for her landscapes of the British countryside, Chidenham Creek one of her finest works. Prout studied at the Slade and taught before WWI at the Hammersmith School of Arts and Crafts.
