Presenting Louisa Cullen, a forgotten woman of genius!  One of our more recent acquisitions is Louisa Cullen’s scrapbook, assembled around 1876 in New England.  Cullen added her own original artwork to the various postcards, photographs, and other novelties she included in her scrapbook. Some of our favorite inclusions are “Tom the Creepy Cat” and her initials which are spelt out via grotesques!

Saw this last night, will be back again and again-beautifulhttp://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-modern/exhibition/henri-matisse-cut-outs   Julia McKenzie

I cannot believe I have just discovered this German artist, Maria Sibylla Merian 1647–1717. Brave, intrepid- a woman who defied convention in every way. She left her husband in order to pursue her career and educate her daughters.She travelled to South America unchaperoned to draw and discover fantastic new insects and species of flora and fauna not seen before in Europe. She paddled up rivers into the rain forest, she caught Malaria. Her paintings and drawings grouped the subjects together into environments and life cycles, this was her invention alone which has become the scientific norm. Genius

New drawing on old admiralty chart-work in progress. see more at Julia Mckenzie
