Anne Anderson (1874—1930) was a prolific Scottish illustrator, primarily known for her art nouveau children's book illustrations, although she also painted, etched and designed greeting cards. Her style of painting was influenced by her contemporaries, Charles Robinson, and Jessie Marion King and was similar to that of her husband, Alan Wright.
Anderson spent her childhood in Argentina. Her book illustrations began appearing at the end of the Edwardian era. She married the artist Alan Wright in June 1912 at Burghfield Common Parish Church in Berkshire, where they would subsequently settle. Though they collaborated on many projects, Anne was considered the driving force. Her husband had had a successful career as illustrator until working on a book for the vilified homosexual Baron Corvo in 1898. Her illustrations may be found in children’s books and annuals such as Blackie's and Cassell's, on Royal Doulton China and were frequently used on postcards.
