About this artwork

Traquair was one of the most talented artists working within the movement known as the Celtic Revival. Influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, she painted murals for several religious and charitable organisations in Edinburgh, including the Catholic Apostolic Church in Broughton Street. She was also a brilliant embroiderer and made exquisite enamel jewellery. Her self-portrait seems quite private and personal, but also hints at a nervous energy.
