Lilias Prints & Notecards


Known best for her artistic talents that brought renowned art critic and prominent social thinker John Ruskin to question his understanding of what female artists were capable of, Lilias Trotter was a British artist, writer, and missionary during England’s Victorian era. Citing the influence of Lilias’ painting on his changed opinion of women artists, Ruskin professes in an 1883 Oxford lecture “For a long time I used to say, in all my elementary books, that except in a graceful and minor way, women could not draw or paint. I’m beginning to bow myself to the much more delightful conviction that no one else can.”
