Veronica Whall (1887-1967) was a significant stained glass artist, painter and illustrator, and daughter of Christopher Whall, the leading artist of the Arts & Crafts movement. After studies at the Central School of Arts & Crafts, which included instruction by her father, she joined his studio. The two worked closely together, with Veronica’s role becoming increasingly important, including acting as co-designer. In 1922 they formed the firm of Whall & Whall Ltd. After her father’s death in 1924 she continued in business with her brother Christopher John Whall as co-director. The firm finally closed in 1953 upon her retirement.
