Margot Hamilton Hill (later Daniels) was an illustrator, theatre designer, and lecturer on the history of fashion and theatre design. The present ink drawing is a working illustration for the book The Evolution of Fashion. Pattern and Cut from 1066 to 1930, co-written by Hill and Peter A. Bucknell and published by Batsford in 1967. Hill provided 56 full-page drawings for the book, each one depicting accurate trends in male and female historical dress against an appropriate period backdrop. This drawing is reproduced in a reduced-scale on page 27 of the book, titled '1300 Edward I'. It illustrates a man with 'gard-corps' and hosen, the woman with 'pelicon' and head dress. The couple are placed in a landscape in front of a castle complex. Hill's working methods can be clearly seen in the artwork; her figures have been cut out and placed onto a new sheet with the background, and white paint has been used for corrections. All 56 drawings, including this work, were exhibited at a selling exhibition at the Grosvenor Gallery, London in November 1967.
