This was one of the first books i read when i got my adult libaray card which should mean the authors name comes early on alphabatically. What i can remember the cover had a picture of a big yellow manor on it and the plot involved some sort of artist being hired to either do work on the manor or teach the owners two(three?) daughters.

SPOILERS BELOW

It's eventually revealed that one of the daughters has severe problems and issues because she was raped and or saw her sister raped (by their father possibly)and expresses them through art.

Caitlin Francis Is it an older book? There is a mystery novel by Wilkie Collins called the Woman in White, it has an artist go to a manor to teach some girls.. He falls in love with one.
I can't remember exactly what happens but there is also something to do with a lady who has escaped from an asylum or something??

No it's not that one though that one seems interesting. It seemed newer than the 80's maybe late 90's early 2000's. I wish i could remember more. I think it may have been set in america
