Potter, Beatrix (English artist and writer, 1866-1943)

Note: In the 1880s and 1890s Potter systematically studied fungi, mosses, lichens, fossils, and Roman antiquities; her watercolors combine broad washes with acutely observed detail in elegant compositions. Pets such as rabbits, mice and hedgehogs were the inspiration for stories concocted to entertain her ex-governess' children. In 1901 "The Tale of Peter Rabbit" was privately published with her own illustrations. The publication of her children's stories gave her independence from her family wealth. She bought Hill Top Farm in Near Sawrey; her her best-loved books are set in this area. She was also a sheep farmer from 1913. English artist and illustrator.
