I can't find her biography though her pictures are very accomplished.
I've some of her work. She was an early woman student at the RA schools and earned her living from art, although mostly as an illustrator. Kind regards Peter Harkness
We have a print of Hartington in Derbyshire, signed by Nelly Erichsen, but not dated. Do you know where I might find the original or what date it is. I am told it might come from a travel book.
Sorry, as I said I couldn't trace her. But see comment above.
Nelly did the illustrations for a book called Highways and Byways in Derbyshire,published c 1905 so I expect your print came from that?
Thank you Sarah, I found it in an old auction catalogue and just loved it. Thanks for the extra information.
If you are still interested...i published her biography last year! Www.encantapublishing.com
