Annie Langley Nairn, Landscape Painter and Designer

Landscape Painter and Designer

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Daughter of George Nairn, A.R.H.A, (q.v.). She exhibited landscapes at the Royal Hibernian Academy from 1844 to 1847. In 1848 she became the wife of Robert William Armstrong, an architect in Dublin, who became connected with the pottery at Belleek, Co. Fermanagh. The success of that factory owed much to his efforts and to the artistic influence of his wife, who designed the floral and other decorations of fish, shells, etc., which were a conspicuous feature in the early productions of the factory.
