Mary Ellen Best is a discovery. In January 1983 forty-seven watercolors by the York artist,m who was then only known to her descendents scattered on four continents, were sold as Sotheby's in New York. This book, illustrated with nearly 140 colour pictures, presents for the first time the enchanting work and lively personality of the artist and offers a unique view of how Europeans lived in the first half of the nineteenth century.
