Charlotte Mount Brock Morell Schreiber was an accomplished British artist who gained prominence in Canadian artistic circles. She was born in Essex and studied art in London. While still a young woman she achieved distinction for her paintings and illustrations. Following her marriage to Weymouth Schreiber in 1875 she came to Ontario, setting up home first in Toronto, and later in the Mississauga area. She was elected the first woman member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 1880 and made a vital contribution to the development of realism in Canadian painting through her high standards of craftsmanship and encouragement of younger artists. She returned to England after the death of her husband in 1898.
