WALLACE, Marjorie (1925-2005) was a painter. [1] She was born in Edinburgh and trained at the Edinburgh College of Art, making such an impression with her early work that she became the youngest person to be elected to the Royal Scottish Academy of Art. In 1953, after an extensive European tour, she was working in Paris when she met and married the South African writer Jan Rabie, later a leading member of South Africa 's “Sestigers”, the young Turks of Afrikaans literature in the 1960s.
