Eglington Margaret Pearson

Person

Eglington Margaret Pearson, English painter, daughter of Samuel Paterson, distinguished herself by her skill in painting on glass. She was the wife of James Pearson. She painted two sets of the Cartoons, after Raphael, one of which was purchased by the Marquis of Lansdowne, and the other by Sir Gregory Page Turner. There is also another set, but whether by the husband or wife, or by both, is not certain. She died in 1823. Her works were various, but mostly copied from pictures by other masters.
