SUSAN ISABEL DACRE (1844-1933)

SID
Portrait of Susan Isabel Dacre by Annie Louisa Swynnerton (Manchester Art Gallery)

From the time they met at art school, Annie and Susan were close friends, travelling, studying and creating art works together in Britain and on the continent.

Like Annie, Susan’s works were not collected by major galleries and only thirty are known of today by image, twenty-two in public galleries, the rest from auction or retailer web sites. She was a gifted landscape and portrait artist, but never (as far as is known) a ‘symbolist’ like Annie.

Below is a list of all the works for which images can be found. For listing by dates and locations, see bottom of page.
