Emma Brownlow King

[The Foundling Restored to its Mother]
oil on canvas
Thomas Coram Foundation, London
1832 - 1905.
English painter. Although she had no formal training, she began drawing at an early age and exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy (1852-67) and the British Institution, London, and sent works as far as Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow. She painted domestic genre scenes, many based on her travels to Brittany, Switzerland and Belgium in the 1850s and 1860s.

That's really good. I only have what I posted, unless this refers to the same Emma?

Find a grave doesn't seem to have her:
