Biography from Ivyhill Gallery:
Elizabeth Bonsall was born in Philadelphia in 1861.  Her father, Amos Bonsall was on the Elisha Kane Arctic trip of 1853.  He later served as an officer in the Union Army during the Civil War.  Her sister Mary Bonsall was also an artist,

Miss Elizabeth Bonsall studied at the following art institutions: the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts with Thomas Eakins; later with illustrator Howard Pyle; and in Paris with Raphael Collin at the Academie Julian and Gustav Coutois at the Academie Colarossi.

She was a member of the Plastic Club, the Philadelphia Art Alliance, the Print Club and the Fellowship of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

She exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago, Boston Art Club, the National Academy of Design, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where she won the Mary Smith Prize (best painting by a Philadelphia woman artist) in 1897.  The painting was acquired by the Pennsylvania Academy by the Temple Fund.  Other works by her are in the Chester County Historical Society and the Delaware Art Museum.

From her exhibition records, she painted in both watercolor and oil with subject matter of genre, still life and landscape.

She passed away in 1956.
