Sharples, Rolinda, 1793-1838; Mrs Ellen Sharples

A new Biannually is being sent out this week. It may arrive within a day or two. Or it may take a week or two. But it’s on the way! And by Thursday, the official new publication date for the Spring/Summer books, we will have caught up on the backlog of orders that came in during April and the first two weeks of May. So, fear not, if you placed an order it won’t be long now. Meanwhile, this wonderful woman is on the cover of new Biannually. She is Mrs Ellen Sharples painted by her daughter Rolinda Sharples in c. 1830, who helped establish the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol by donating her own art collection.
