Margaret Stoddart exhibited widely during nine years away: in 1898 with the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, in 1899 with the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, London and from 1899 to 1900 with the Royal Society of British Artists, London. Although it was mainly landscapes that she exhibited in England, her flower paintings were accepted at the Salon of the Société des

Artistes Francais in 1902-04. From 1905 to 1906 she exhibited in Paris with the more progressive Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts. Before leaving London in 1906, she gained acceptance at the Royal Academy with A Capri Garden, painted in 1905 in her more colourful style.
