"One of the last survivors of the later Pre-Raphaelites—later, because they had no contact with the original Brotherhood—was Eleanor Fortescue-Brickdale (1871-1945). Like Byam Shaw and Robert Anning Bell, she inherited the Pre-Raphaelite love of moral and symbolic meaning, of allegory and decoration, of glowing colour. . . . Concentrating upon water-colour work of a highly wrought character, she was necessarily limited in her output. . . . Essentially an illustrator, she put precise drawing into a jewelled setting of brilliant colour [Hardie, 130]
