Fannie Moody 1861-1948


Daughter of renowned artist Francis Wollaston Moody, British female artist Fannie Moody is best known for her artwork depicting animals. For the most part, she was a self taught artist (apart from a few lessons under the tutelage of John Trivett Nettleship) and her work often depicted the playful and humorous nature of dogs. 

One of the more popular female artists in her time, she exhibited her works at the Royal Academy London between 1888-1897. She was a member of the Society of Women Artists (SWA), which also had other prolific members such as Madeline Marrable, Margaret Backhouse, and Rose Mary Barton, among others.
