Isobel Lilian Gloag

There weren’t too many female Symbolist painters, but one that I’m rather fond of is Isobel Lilian Gloag (1868-1917). She’s all but forgotten now, but many of her paintings were exhibited at the Royal Academy during her lifetime. Trained at the Slade, she also designed stained glass windows and posters.

Angels in a Basilica, a Diptych, 1900

The Magic Mantle, 1898

The Kiss of the Enchantress, 1890

Scene from Love's Labours Lost, 1900
