Anna Brownell Jameson [1794-1860] essayist, travel writer, biographer, art and literary critic. Separated from her husband, Jameson made her first journey to Germany where she developed a passion for German art and literature. She joined her husband briefly in Upper Canada and recorded her experiences in a travel book, before returning to England alone. Her circle of friends included Lady Byron, Jane Carlyle, Fanny Kemble, Elizabeth Gaskell, the Brownings and Harriete Martineau. Her art criticism was much admired, including the above, in which she "expands the aesthetic context to propound her views on womanhood." Jameson was quite concerned with the legal and educational rights of women and her later writings addressed several of the issues involving women.
