Florence Mary Anderson (1874 – 1930) was an English artist, book illustrator, wood engraver and children’s author who flourished between 1914 and 1930. She also illustrated under her maiden name of Molly MacArthur or Florence Mary MacArthur. Her work was influenced by the British school of Fairy Art.
Though she wrote some books, it is as an illustrator, in watercolour and black and white, of children’s books and annuals that Anderson is chiefly remembered.
