  • About F. C. Tottie

    Frances Catherine Tottie (b. 1824), known as Fanny, was a wealthy Yorkshirewoman who produced drawings from her extensive travels in Great Britain and Europe.

    She may have been taught, but was almost certainly influenced, by noted artist George Walker (1781-1856), with whom she had connections.
