I've recently come across your website, through your FaceBook page. My parents knew Marshall from their Bulawayo days - Terry and Gay French. My mother was a Wright - and is now in Cape Town, my father emigrated to Australia 10 or so years ago - and is still a practicing physician there.

I am a painter, and remember as a very young man coming across some of Marshall's work and being astounded by it. I had a brief time in Bulawayo myself, where I was asked to exhibit in a young artists show at the National Gallery, curated by Stephen Williams, who died tragically in a motor cycle accident. We had also discussed Marshall's work together, as he was also an admirer - and showed one or two from the permanent collection. Valda (Baron) Cohen is a friend of my mother's - and I always remember the painting on her veranda. But cannot remember the name of the painting?!

I am also a friend of Simon Back who in his own right is a fantastic painter - and counts Marshall's work as one of his greatest sources of inspiration.

My father told me that Marshall had visited our house when I was a very small child and painted a picture of the 'big bad wolf' for me. I wish my parents had had the sense to keep it!

Thank you for the website, and I will continue to 'tune in' from time to time for inspiration.
