Sophia Rosamond Praeger, 1867-1954: Art, Literature, Science

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Sophia Rosamond Praeger (1867-1954) was one of the first major artists to emerge from the north of Ireland in the late nineteenth century. This publication accompanied the first major retrospective to offer a comprehensive overview of all Praeger's work including architectural, decorative and memorial sculpture, statuary, portraiture, medal design, graphic design for books, newspapers and magazines, designs for the Gaelic League and Suffrage Atelier as well as her poetry and prose. Today Praeger is one of the best loved but least well-known of all Ulster artists and although neglected by mainstream art history her work remains enduringly popular with the public.
