Adelaide Claxton (British painter) 1835 - ca. 1905
The Party on the Stairs, s.d.
watercolour with bodycolour heightened with white
50 x 45 cm. (19.75 x 17.75 in.)
With her sister Florence, she was forced by circumstance (their father was the not very successful painter Marshall Claxton) to make a living as an artist. The sisters often worked together, but Florence's marriage and subsequent retirement from painting prompted Adelaide to produce more ambitious work. Adelaide married in 1874. The astute social commentary of much of the Claxton sisters' work anticipated modern feminism.
