Ida Rentoul Outhwaite was an illustrator whose work graced galleries as well as children’s books and poetry written by her equally creative sister Annie Rentoul and others. Fairies, witches and ethereal scenes were her stock in trade. There’s a summary of her illustrative work here at ortakales.com.
Ida exhibited often in Europe during the 1920s. This photo from The Age – 10 Feb 1925 is of Ida and her husband returning to Australia on the SS Ormonde.
