Charlotte Catharine Murray
Dates: British, born 1840
Biographical Account:

Murray was the neighbour of James Reddie Anderson, a pupil and correspondent of John Ruskin, who lived in Keswick. Little is known of her life although she remained unmarried and later, living in London listed herself as a Christian Worker. Ruskin greatly admired her botanical watercolours, but does not seem to have been a regular correspondent.


Born at sea, the daughter of a Capatain in the East India Company, Charlotte must also have had the money and leisure to travel as several of her studies show that she produced them in Germany and Italy.
