Minnie Dibdin Spooner (1867-1949), born Winifred Davison, was a notable British artist celebrated for her illustrations in children's literature. Between 1893 and 1903, she exhibited her works at the prestigious Royal Academy of London. In 1900, she married Charles Sydney Spooner, an architect, and together, they embarked on collaborative ventures in furniture and stained glass design for various church projects. Under the name M. Dibdin Spooner, she illustrated The Golden Staircase: Poems and Verses for Children, a renowned anthology of children's poetry from 1906. She was recognized for her skill as a miniature painter, employing oil paint for portraits and watercolor for miniatures and other subjects. Her artistic repertoire also included landscapes and genre scenes.
