Designer loves art...6...Eleanor Fortescue Brickdale

During the Victorian/Edwardian time, you won't hear a lot of female artists. 

This is Eleanor Fortescue Brickdale

 Why? because at that time all females were bound to be at home, they weren't able to go into schools of any kind. and when they did they were treated unequally. and less favored by critics.
she is one of the few women that with time won over the critics and social standards.
her colors are vibrant with medieval subjects and moral thought
