In 1876, when The Graphic selected notable engravings from their magazine for separate publication, two of her drawings were published in Graphic Portfolio. Miss Paterson had studied at the Birmingham School of Design, and also at Academy schools in 1867 under John Everett Millais. Other teachers included noted illustrators Fred Walker and Frederick Leighton. Shortly after completing her formal training, she found work in the newly 34 HARDY AND HIS ILLUSTRATORS launched Graphic. Her marriage in 1847 to William Allingham, poet and member of the Rossetti circle, points up the close relationship between the worlds of visual and verbal art in the Victorian era.
2 After sending off what he had written, Hardy left for a visit to Cornwall, where he was courting Emma Gifford, and which also happened to be the setting for his story. Returning to London, Hardy discovered he could not write there, and so he went back to Dorset in late September. A diary entry on September 30 noted that the manuscript up to page 163 was sent to Tinsley. HARDY AND HIS ILLUSTRATORS 3J Hardy's correspondence with Tinsley reveals that he was hard pressed to fulfill his promise to send future installments by the first of each month.
Macmillan's Magazine and The Fortnightly Review, for instance, did not include engravings with the text of their fiction. That simple fact explains the superficially puzzling problem of why Hardy's Woodlanders, so eminently suitable for illustrations, was published without them. It appeared in Macmillan's Magazine-and if Tess of the D'Urbervilles had been accepted by that magazine, as Hardy had originally hoped, it too would have met the" same fate. Both these magazines, particularly The Fortnightly Review, catered to a more specialized, intellectual audience.
