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 well-liked 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 on Faroese painting trailblazer Niels Kruse. She died at her cottage Wake Robin in Vermont, in 1932.
