Biographical Material

The daughter of a clergyman, Emily Mary Osborn studied art in London privately and at Dickinson's Academy, perhaps also in Munich. By the age of seventeen, she was exhibiting at the Royal Academy; soon she was receiving commissions, and one of her paintings, Nameless and Friendless, was purchased by Queen Victoria. — Rupert Maas
