Miss Lily


270 pages Hardcover, Colour illustrations,

Lily Allport, christened Curzona Frances Louise, was a strong woman who lived between two worlds - the old and the new. Born in the nineteenth century to a prominent Hobart family of lawyers, Lily refused to take the expected path of marriage and children. Described by her brother-in-law as 'impudent and headstrong', Lily was determined to become a professional artist. Her drive to follow her own path took her to London and success in the Royal Academy of Arts, and a satisfying life at the centre of the nineteenth-century artistic world. And then in the 1930s, at an age when she might be expected to ease up, she returned to Hobart and set up a printmaking studio, creating a late flowering of works in an entirely different medium.
