Artists and writers

In a few of her early novels Margaret Oliphant created characters who were writers, most notably Agnes in The Athelings, whose experiences as a young author were similar to her own.

She also created several characters who were artists, most notably in The Three Brothers, At His Gates, and Mr Sandford. Mrs Oliphant's husband Frank had been an artist (a painter, and a designer of stained glass); and she enjoyed recreating the ambience of the artist's world.
