Mary Hamilton Mack was born in 1903

Mary Hamilton Mack was an English artist who was active in Sydney during the mid 1920s. She studied at the Slade School in London from 1919-23, where she won the Slade scholarship (known as the Melville-Nettleship prize). According to a brief profile in Art in Australia she was a young artist (in 1925) and had exhibited at the New English Art Club, the Goupil Galleries, and the Royal Academy prior to coming to Australia. Scant evidence suggests that the artist signed her work 'Hamilton Mack’, this may be her surname.

The artist arrived in Australia in 1924. She exhibited six drawings at the Society of Artists November 1924 'Exhibition of Etchings and Drawings’ at Farmers Department Store, Sydney. Two of these pencil images were reproduced in the March 1925 issue of Art in Australia . One well detailed drawing, titled Professor Sadler , depicts the English born Professor of Oriental Studies at the University of Sydney. Professor A. L. Sadler was a friend of Sydney Ure Smith and contributed occasional articles to Ure Smith’s publications, Art in Australia and The Home .
