Phoebe Anna Traquair 1852–1936

Elizabeth Cumming

Phoebe Anna Traquair was a unique figure in British culture. The first significant professional woman artist in modern Scotland, she was also a key figure in the Arts and Crafts movement. A free spirit, Traquair celebrated life through image, colour and texture, taking her inspiration from Renaissance painting, the art and poetry of Blake and the music of Wagner. She produced a huge body of work, from vast, breathtaking mural decorations and sensual embroideries to exquisite illuminated manuscripts and enamels. This beautifully illustrated book sheds new light on the ambitions of late Victorian and Edwardian culture.
