As a young girl in 17th century England, Mary Craddock loved to watch her father paint. When she was ten, he would put a brush in her hand and let her use up the bits of colour on his palette. By the time she met and married Charles Beale in 1652, Mary was determined to pursue a career as a painter, and prove that a woman could be as good a portrait painter as a man, despite the obvious prejudices of those times.

With the benefit of her artistic knowledge and author’s skill, Nancy Cato gives us a vivid insight into life in artistic circles over 300 years ago, the trials and heartbreaks of running a household and raising a family in plague-torn London, and above all the courageous story of Mary Beale, intent upon liberating herself from the considerable constraints of 17th century society.
