| || |
Florence Anderson was an English artist active as a book illustrator throughout the first three decades of the 20th Century. Her art was influenced by the British Fairy School. Her first major commission appears to have been an extensive suite of colour but also monochrome illustrations prepared for The Dream Pedlar published in 1914. Anderson received further substantial commissions throughout the decade that followed, including major suites such as TTravelling Companions (1915) ; Fairy Tales from Brazil (1916) ; The Magic Kiss (1916) and The Twin Knights of France (1919).
