Anderson was born in France but spent most of her artistic career in England. She specialized in genre painting, particularly that of women and children in rural or natural settings. Her work and timeline most closely align with the neoclassic movement of art history in which artists and sculptors draw inspiration from that of Ancient Greece or Rome. For example, the gowns in Birdsong are reminiscent of of the tunic-like garments worn by women in ancient times.
I am positive there is many, many more (especially of the art techniques), however because of tags playing up and my blog had a problem with a whole page disappearing, these are the only I could find at the moment. More will certainly be added. You can exoect another post filled with even more art history info! Hopefully all the links work.
