Eleanor Fortescue-Brickdale (1872-1945) was one of the most popular artists of the Edwardian era. She became famous as an illustrator, painter and watercolour artist. Her work could be seen in exhibitions, magazines, books, churches, and private homes. Much of Eleanor's work was painted in a Pre-Raphaelite style.
Eleanor was a designer as well as an artist. She produced stained-glass windows, illustrated books and small-scale sculptures as well as paintings. Her use of different media followed the Pre-Raphaelite tradition of applied art, made famous by William Morris. In all these media, she told stories, drew morals and celebrated the beauty of nature, as the original Pre-Raphaelites had in the 1850s. (liverpoolmuseums.org.uk) (Wikipedia.org)
