Biography: Praeger,1867–1954, was a sculptor, illustrator, author, and poet. She studied at the Belfast School of Art and the Slade School in London. Her work in sculpture was balanced by the illustration of numerous children's books several of which she also wrote. Her illustrations were influenced both by fashionable British illustrators such as Walter Crane and Kate Greenaway and the local, naturalist, antiquarian, and folk knowledge of her Belfast circle.
