Biography

British artist and writer Gwen Raverat was a granddaughter of the evolutionist Charles Darwin (1809-82), who became known as a woodcut artist and co-founder of the British Society of Wood Engravers. She was married to the French painter Jacques Raverat, and they later settled in Nice. After his death, Raverat returned to her hometown of Cambridge and wrote her memoirs.
