In recent years, the Golden Age English artist who was a well-known illustrator for Blackie & Son was mistakenly identified as another artist named "Emma Florence Harrison". Little was known about this mysterious lady beloved for her poems and illustrations of children, fairies, and Romantic /Pre-Raphaelite themes. Now the real artist has been positively identified as Florence Susan Harrison. It is hoped that correct accreditation for an incredible legacy of poetry and art will at last be given to her. This book tells the story of how the truth was uncovered and gives the detailed biographies of both women -- Emma Florence Harrison and Florence Susan Harrison. Each woman's story is a fascinating tale that reveals much about the common challenges faced by female artists in early 20th Century England. Events of their lives provide insights into why one gained fame as an illustrator, while the other did not.
