Phoebe Anna Traquair 1852-1936 (paperback)
This beautifully illustrated book on Scottish artist Phoebe Anna Traquair, sheds new light on the ambitions of late Victorian and Edwardian culture.
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.
