This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The miniature painter Mabel Hankey was born in Bath, England, the daughter of the professional artist Henry Eddington Hobson.  She became the first wife of the painter William Lee Hankey, and exhibited with the Royal Society of British Artists, the Royal Miniature Society, the Society of Women Artists and the Royal Academy.

Hankey exhibited a portrait at the Royal Academy in 1907 of Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the future Queen Elizabeth, wife of George VI.  Also at the Royal Academy she exhibited a portrait of Lady Elizabeth’s younger brother David in 1916 and another portrait of Lady Elizabeth in 1917.  The Countess of Strathmore also commissioned a watercolour portrait from Hankey of her daughter aged nineteen, a picture which eventually entered Queen Elizabeth’s collection.
