Description

Sketched on small pieces of card with embossed borders, painted on tiny squares of ivory or pressed between tissue paper in leather-bound albums, the artwork of nineteenth century women is easily overlooked, but no less beautiful and beguiling than work carried out on a larger scale. "Picturesque Pursuits" explores the breadth and diversity of colonial women artists and their work.show more
