A bit about Josephine Ghilchik:
"Josephine Matley Duddle (1890–1981, Mosman, Sydney) was the daughter of James Duddle, a musician and college student tutor from Lancashire, and his wife Ellen. She was married in 1915 to the cartoonist and painter David Louis Ghilchik. Josephine was a student at the Manchester School of Art, where she met David, a fellow student. Her siblings were Robert, Marion, and Charles.
Josephine became noted for her postcards featuring children and fairies, most of her work being produced in the period between World War I and World War II. She belonged to the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the Society of Women Artists. Her painted landscapes and portraits were usually signed 'Josephine Ghilchik'. (Wikipedia).
