Excerpt from English Female Artists, Vol. 2 of 2
The next two years drifted away thus, divided between London and the old country home - an intensely happy time. The young girl felt she was making good progress, and was at length on the right track. While in London, she found herself for the first time in a circle of artists. Mr. Herbert continued from time to time to overlook her work, and to give her his valuable advice; and thankfully does she remember that to him she is indebted for the only art assistance she ever had, with the exception of a subsequent winter, when Mr. Hodgson, ab. A also helped her by occasional visits of counsel and criticism. To him also is due most heartfelt thanks.
In order to understand her later works, it is necessary to touch on a subject which must be reverently and delicately approached. At this time her mind was set at rest on a question by which it had long been agitated. She had been brought up in an atmosphere more resembling the higher and more moral side of the old Grecian philosophers than any Christian sect. By nature deeply devotional, she united these art struggles with religious aspirations and vague yearnings. With those who are living, it is impossible to speak of such phases of thought.
