Evelyn De Morgan (30 august 1855 – 2 mai 1919)a fost o pictorita pre-rafaelita engleza .

S-a nascut ca Evelyn Pickering. Parintii ei faceau parte din fruntea clasei mijlocii.Tatal ei, Percival Pickering QC, era arhivarul orasului Pontefract. Mama ei Anna Maria Wilhelmina Spencer Stanhope, era sora artistului John Roddam Spencer Stanhope si o descendenta a reformatorului Coke of Norfolk, conte de Leicester.

Evelyn a fost educata acasa si a inceput sa studieze desenul la 15 ani. In dimineata aniversarii de 17 ani, Evelyn a notat in jurnalul ei, „Arta este eterna, insa viata e scurta…” „Voi recupera ce am pierdut, nu trebuie sa pierd nici un moment.” A insistat sa-i convinga pe parintii ei s-o lase sa mearga la scoala de arta. La inceput n-au fost de acord, insa in 1873 au inscris-o la Slade School of Art. Unchiul ei, John Roddam Spencer Stanhope, a avut o foarte mare influenta asupra lucrarilor ei. Evelyn il vizita deseori in Florenta unde acesta locuia. Aceasta i-a permis sa-i studieze pe marii artisti ai Renasterii; ea a fost incantata in special de lucrarile lui Sandro Botticelli. Aceasta pasiune a influentat-o sa renunte la subiectele clasice preferate de scoala Slade si sa-si creeze un stil propriu.

In 1887 s-a maritat cu ceramistul William De Morgan. Au trait in Londra pana la moartea lui in 1917. Ea a murit doi ani mai tarziu pe 2 mai 1919 in Londra si a fost inmormantata in cimitirul Brookwood Cemetery, de langa Woking, Surrey.

Nikolai Astrup (30 august 1880 – 21 ianuarie 1928) a fost un pictor norvegian.

Astrup s-a nascut in Bremanger din Nordfjord, insa a crescut in Ålhus in Jølster unde tatal lui era preot. El a fost stranepotul lui Nils Astrup, un membru al parlamentului. Tatal lui, Christian dorea ca Nikolai, fiul lui cel mai mare, sa devina preot, insa Nikolai era mai interesat de desen si pictura. El a studiat aceste materii in Oslo ca student la scoala  populara de pictura  Backer.

Pentru o scurta pertioada a locuit  in Paris si in Germania, apoi s-a reintors la Jølster. S-a casatorit acolo si a avut 8 copii. Viata era foarte grea si a trebuit sa lupte cu boala. Astrup a murit de pneumonie in 1928 la varsta de 47 ani in  Førde langa Jølster.

Astrup a preferat culorile clarer, puternice si a pictat mai mult imprejurimile din Jølster. Lucrarile lui au o stransa legatura cu natura si mediul pictat intro bogatie de culori distincte. Astrup e considerat un pictor neo-romantic, insa a lucrat si gravuri in lemn. Nikolai Astrup e unul dintre cei mai mari pictori norvegieni de la inceputul anilor 1900, iar unele dintre lucrarile lui au fost vandute la licitatii pentru  aproximativ 500,000 $  .
