"Elizabeth Rivers (1903-1964) was an artist who created water colour and oil paintings, stained glass, sculpture and wood engravings. She is perhaps best known for her wood engravings. These were often created to illustrate others' literary works, such as Lord Tennyson's The Day-Dream (1928) , Connemara Journal by Ethel Mannin (1947) and Out of Bedlam by Christopher Smart (1956). ..Rivers was born in England and studied at Goldsmith's College, where she developed her interest in wood engraving and trained under Edmund J Sullivan, who, according to Donlon, influenced her illustrative style.
