Annie Louisa Robinson Swynnerton (1844 – 24 October 1933) was an English painter.
Annie Louisa Robinson was born in Kersal near Manchester. Her father, Francis Robinson, was a solicitor. Swnnerton had six sisters. She made and sold watercolor paintings to supplement the family's income during a difficult financial period. Emily, her sister, also developed a career as an artist.
...Swynnerton exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1879 to 1934. John Singer Sargent was instrumental in her election in 1922 to became the first female associate of the Royal Academy since the 18th century. (Two founding members of the Royal Academy of the Arts in 1768 were Mary Moser and Angelica Kauffman, but women could not attend life classes or hold office. Women were discouraged from studying at the school following Moser and Kauffman's deaths. Laura Knight also became an associate member in the 1920s and became the first woman to become a full member in 1936.) (Wikipedia) undefined
