Edward Frederick Brewtnall
Based in London, Brewtnall worked in both oil and watercolour, exhibiting, from 1868, at the Royal Academy, Society of British Artists, Grosvenor Gallery and the Royal Watercolour Society (RWS) - he was made a full member of the latter in 1883. He was also a member of the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA) and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI).
Brewtnall had a particular interest in Folk tales and Ballads which became the subjects of many of his paintings such as "Cinderella", "The Frog Princess" (1880), "Little Red Riding Hood" (1895), "Sleeping Beauty" etc. He provided artwork for The Graphic, "The Pall Mall, "The Quiver", and The English Illustrated magazines, and illustrated books such as Barnard's edition of Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress" and others.
