E. Box

British artist named Eden Fleming (1919 to 1988).  When she first exhibited her work, at the Hanover Gallery, London in 1949, Eden Fleming adopted the pseudonym E. Box. Box painted highly colored, stylized animals and figures, sometimes with Christian significance, in exotic landscapes. The catalogue for her 1981 retrospective at David Carritt Ltd in London was prefaced by Howard Hodgkin, who wrote that Box's work was 'painted with the direct one to one representation that we find in Persian and Indian miniature painting'. Roy Strong, in a 1978 article for Vogue magazine, identified the influence of icons and the work of the Douanier Rousseau in her paintings
