Elizabeth Taylor (painter)

Elizabeth Taylor (January 8, 1856 – March, 1932) was an American artist, journalist, botanist and traveller. Her travel essays from Alaska, Canada, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Norway were published in Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly, Atlantic Monthly, Forest and Stream and others. Some of her essays are published in The Far Islands and Other Cold Places (ISBN 1-880654-11-3).

During World War I she was marooned at Eiði in the Faroe Islands, where she was a probable influence upon Faroese painting entrepreneur Niels Kruse. She died at her cottage Wake Robin in Vermont, in 1932.
