Margaret Tarrant (British, 1888-1959)
Tarrant's characteristic subjects are fairies, animals,
and romantic pictures of children. She also painted a number of works
on religious subjects, and completed a series of wildflower paintings.
Her work is delicate and accomplished and remains extremely popular:
a diary illustrated with her works is still produced each year.
