Ann Walker's sketchbook

Published on 9 June 2020Last updated on 17 February 2021

Ann Walker was a prolific artist.

Mentions of Ann Walker spending some time sketching or drawing aren't uncommon in Anne Lister's journals. During her years with Anne, Miss Walker had several drawing masters and experimented with different techniques. Shibden Hall was a frequent subject in Ann's art, but she also sketched several other subjects during her travels with Anne Lister.

This project collects references to Ann Walker's sketches, watercolors, and other artworks that are mentioned in Anne Lister's journals.

There is no complete list of Ann Walker's artworks. It's very likely that she worked on many different pieces over her life but, unfortunately, none of those pieces has been found so far.

The spreadsheet below is a collaborative effort to compile as many references to Ann's art as possible.
