Eloise Harriet Stannard 1829-1915.
Daughter of Alfred Stannard, Eloise was a member of one of the foremost families of Artists which characterised the English Norwich School. She may have attended her father’s art classes and possibly assisted in his Studio.
Her earlier work shows the influence of the Dutch Still Life Masters and in particular Van Huysum, but by the mid 1860s she had developed her own style, depicting her less formal compositions, painted in natural light. The quality of her painting ensured many patrons, and the Norwich Corporation permitted her to use pieces of their plate in her paintings.
Exhibited: Royal Academy (1856-1893) British Institude (1852-1867).
