Plaque Text

An accomplished British artist who gained prominence in Canadian cultural circles, Charlotte Morrell was born in the County of Essex, England. She studied art in London and, while still a young woman, achieved distinction for her paintings and illustrations. Following her marriage to Weymouth Schreiber in 1875, she came to Ontario, finally settling in this area. Here, inspired by local scenes and phenomena, Schreiber continued to pursue an artistic career. Elected the first woman member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 1880, she made a vital contribution to the development of realism in Canadian painting through her high standards of craftsmanship and her encouragement of younger artists. After her husband's death in 1898, Schreiber returned to England where she spent the rest of her life.
