- Phoebe Anna Traquair From a commentary by Elizabeth Cumming
Phoebe Anna Traquair’s place in history is unique. She was the first important professional woman artist of modern Scotland.
To rank as such might be enough to ensure her fame, but Traquair was also a central figure within Scottish Arts and Crafts practice, working prolifically in such diverse fields as embroidery, enamelwork, leather book-cover tooling and, not least, manuscript illumination and mural decoration.
