THERE IS A NEW PAGE on this website – ‘Biographical snippets‘ – links are on the home page. I do not intend this to be a formal biography, but reproductions of first hand information – quotes from contemporaneous accounts, newspaper cuttings, letters, other people’s memoirs, etc.
For formal biographies, I recommend:
- Katie J. T. Herrington & Rebecca Milner (2018) Annie Swynnerton: Painting Light and Hope. Manchester City Art Galleries.
- Susan Thomson (2018) The Life and Works of Annie Louisa Swynnerton. Manchester Art Press Limited.
A GOOGLE SEARCH for Annie Swynnerton paintings formerly turned up an image called ‘Blue Angel,’ supposedly by Annie, being sold as a poster by commercial websites. This was, in fact, a painting called ‘The Breeze’ by American artist Mary Fairchild MacMonies (1858-1946).
Last week I emailed the company informing them of the error and the product had been removed. Links redirect to either a blank page or a poster of ‘The Sense of Sight,’ although the latter has been misnamed in places as ‘The Gift of Sight,’ but is, at least, correctly attributed to Annie.
