Louise Rayner Artist
Louise Rayner Artist 1832 - 1924
Everyone has seen Louise's work, but few know who she was!
Louise's paintings have appeared on countless jigsaws and prints.
As a distant relative I am hoping to further boost the revival of interest in Louise and her sisters.
Her water colours have been sold for £30,000 or more
I provide some useful links below of which the excellent Dudley link is the definitive link
Louise Rayner and her sisters were pioneering female artists and feature in
Ellen Clayton's "English female artists" - 1876
, and would be worthy of Feminist study
Sisters Nancy,Louise,Margaret,Rose,Frances and brother Richard were all artists
Her father Samuel and mother Anne Manser were also noted artists.
Louise Rayner painted street scenes which are sometimes the ONLY record of their epoch, these painting form the basis of Louise Rayner Walks in Chester and other towns.
