Description / Expertise
Miss Eloise Harriet Stannard was the eldest daughter of Alfred Stannard and sister of Alfred George Stannard and Emily Stannard. She specialized in paintings of fruit and flowers, which she exhibited at the Royal Academy, the British Institution and the Society of British Artists. Three works of hers can be found in the Norwich Museum. Her still lives are often compared to the work of George Lance (1802-1864), a pupil of Haydon, who was an admirer of her work.
