The following text was written and submitted by Jean Ershler Schatz, artist and researcher of Laguna Woods, California:

Gwen John was the elder sister to Augustus John, born in Haverfordwest in Wales in 1876.  Their mother, Augusta, was an amateur painter, but she died when Gwen was eight.  Their father was both silent and unsympathetic and Gwen escaped to the Slade School of Art the year following her brother.  For a long time she was the quiet sister of the flamboya (showing 500 of 2873 characters).
