A fully updated and expanded edition of the definitive study of Phoebe Anna Traquair
This is a compelling account of the life and career of Phoebe Anna Traquair, a leading figure in Britain's Arts and Crafts movement. The new edition features new research about her artistic practice, materials and technique as well as her intellectual life, including her correspondence with John Ruskin.
Her total commitment to the place of art in her daily life is revealed alongside new details on her family and social life. Traquair was remarkable for her openness to all types of art, and worked in a range of media including embroidery, enamels, illuminated manuscripts and murals. This new edition features 120 illustrations including new discoveries, as well as some of her most famous and best-loved works.
Beautifully illustrated and featuring the artist's own words, this book is at once a fascinating biography and an artistic study of one of Scotland's first professional women artists.
