Eliza Tudor LANE

Eliza Tudor LANE
Lady BLUMBERG; aka E Tudor

Eliza Lane's first show was with the RCPS in 1886, and she later went on to study under Stanhope FORBES.

A watercolourist, she specialised in sea paintings. In 1900 she exhibited and sold at NAG A Misty Morning along with Courtyard - San Gregoria, With the Summer Dawn and Boats in Harbour, and the following year Penzance Fishing Boats.

In 1902 she was living in 'The Tower House' at Boscastle, Cornwall. She married General Sir Herbert Edward Blumberg in the Camelford Registration District of Cornwall in September 1904. At NAG, in 1908 under the name of E Tudor LANE, she sold A Fair Weather Breeze. She and her husband retired to St Ives in the mid-1920s, becoming actively associated with the Art Colony there, although Eliza was by then an invalid.

She was, along with her daughter, Cecil de Wynter LANE, a founder member of STISA. Lady Blumberg is buried in the churchyard of the Parish church of St Uny at Lelant, Cornwall.
