“Alice Bolingbroke Woodward is an English illustrator. As a child, she was educated at home by governesses, along with her four sisters and two brothers. From a young age the children were encouraged to draw. By her late teens, Alice was skilled enough to illustrate for her father's lectures and for the papers of his colleagues. This allowed her to earn enough money to begin her studies at South Kensington School of Art, and later at the Westminster School of Art followed thereafter by the Académie Julian in Paris. She took lessons in illustration from Joseph Pennell and Maurice Greiffenhagen and her connection with Pennell led to commissions from J.M. Dent and Macmillan and Company to illustrate children's books. She also continued to illustrate for scientific work throughout her career. Alice Woodward died in 1951”.
