Waddington's Auction House Biography and Notes

Elizabeth Forbes was born in Ottawa in 1859 as the daughter of William Armstrong, an official with the Government of Canada. She travelled to England in the 1870s to study at the South Kensington art schools. In 1878 she returned to Canada to continue her studies at the Art Students League in Toronto. In 1885 she moved to Cornwall where she met her future husband, the artist Stanhope Forbes, whom she married in 1889. Her work was influenced by Whistler and she is particularly known for her paintings of children. Her works rarely appear on the art market. This work may be a self-portrait, circa 1890.
