Join us for this walk around our Medieval, Georgian & Victorian streets and learn about her life, her art and her city.
Like many of our first group of women, Louisa undoubtedly had a privileged upbringing. She was also fortunate to have a father and mother who valued her as a person and not just as a commodity to maintain their standing in Society. Indeed, Louisa appears to have enjoyed a close relationship with her father. She later excelled under the tutelage of some of the most respected art teachers in the area.
However, Louisa’s life was not without its difficulties. Chief among them was that, even though she was a respected watercolourist, she was still not allowed to mix in elite art circles because she was a woman. For more historical information based on research by Helga Fox, Nicky Harley and our wider research team, take a look at our broadsheets.
