Uncommon Power: Some Pre-Raphaelite Sisters and the Watts Gallery
Although not a founder member of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, Ford Maddox Brown has always been considered part of the wider grouping of artists. He taught his daughters Lucy and Catherine to paint, and both became professional artists in their own right - although visitors to the relatively recent exhibition of 'Pre-Raphaelite Sisters' at the National Portrait Gallery might never have heard of them: their work remains obscure. Now they are the subject of a focussed exhibition at the Watts Gallery in Surrey (until 20 February). This talk will not only look at their work, but will also give some space to other Pre-Raphaelite women, as well as a brief introduction to artist George Frederick Watts and the "Artists' Village" in which the eponymous Gallery is located.
Talks are not recorded.
