|In the Conservatory, Frances Maria Jones Bannerman, 1883|
Frances Maria Jones Bannerman was a Canadian painter and poet. She was one of the first North American artists influenced by the Impressionists.
This work, “In the Conservatory”, was the first Canadian work to be exhibited at the Paris Salon.
Arthritis, the aftereffects of several bouts of influenza and the death of her husband caused her to turn her hand to poetry, with her first collection, “Milestones” being published in 1899.
