Sophia Stansbury was an early 19th Century watercolourist with a remarkably dynamic approach to form and palette, far ahead of the prevalent styles of the period.
Her highly illustrative naive style, and almost theatrical settings have retained almost all of their colour, owing to exemplary storage conditions for the last two centuries. Her work includes classical studies, portrait scenes, and English landscapes.
