AUTUMN by FRANCES MacNAIR: 1898

 

After a long period of neglect in their home town (where they had been accused of being traitors during World War I because of their associations with German and Austrian artists),  a revival of interest in them started in the late sixties, with Continental researchers showing how they influenced many artists in Ireland, England, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland.
