Both Elizabeth's parents were interested in art and at an early age she was encouraged to paint and draw. At first Elizabeth concentrated on painting portraits and landscapes but after visiting France, where she saw paintings inspired by the Franco-Prussian War, she began to paint military subjects. In 1874 submitted a painting entitled the Roll Call to the Royal Academy in London - it was so popular it was taken on tour. In later conflicts Britons sought more encouraging visions & her fame diminished. "I never painted for the glory of war, but to portray its pathos and heroism."- EB quote. 281pp, less than 500g for post. Fascinating autobiography for military, art, feminist interest. Faults? vertical crease to cover visible in reflected light.
