Anne Mee (nee Foldstone) c1775-1851

Anne's father was a portrait painter and she started painting herself at the age of 12, later studying under George Romney. She was a prolific artist and with a fortuitous introduction to Queen Charlotte she painted miniatures of the Queen and her daughters. There is a miniature by her in the Wallace Collection and several in the collection of the present Queen. A self portrait of Mrs Mee and her family can be seen in the V & A Museum, London.
