Ethel Leontine Gabain (1883-1950)

Ethel Leontine Gabain (26 March 1883 Le Havre - 30 January 1950 London) was a French-English artist. Gabain was a renowned painter and lithographer and among the founding members of the Senefelder Club.
She was the wife of the print maker John Copley and the mother of actor Peter Copley, and was also known by her married name of Ethel Copley.
While she was known for her oil portraits of actresses, Gabain was one of the few artists of her time able to live on the sale of her lithographs.

She also did etchings, dry-points, as well as some posters.
