Louisa Caroline WHITEHOUSE

Miss Louisa Caroline WHITEHOUSE
aka Louie

The third of four sisters, all of whom were probably artists and travelled extensively on the continent and within Britain. The family home was at Leamington Priors in Warwickshire. She exhibited at St Ives in March 1912, and again in 1913. A Miss Whitehouse (? possibly Louisa WHITEHOUSE) exhibited at NAG in 1912. In replying to census questions, as recorded in 1901, she offered 1871 as her birth year, shaving 14 years from her age. The sisters all worked from St Peters Street Studio, St Ives.
