Event description
Join De Morgan Director Sarah Hardy for an introduction to the symbolic and deeply personal use of Autumn for artists

About this event

A time of blazing colour, when the world seems alive and yet the promise of imminent death lingers as winter approaches. Autumn is a time of flux. One season to the next draws the nights in and changes how we move, how we interact.

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness.

Artists have responded to this season in painting over the generations, using it as a symbol for personal or spiritual change.

In this talk, I will look in particular depth at John Everett Millais's Autumn and Evelyn De Morgan's Demeter Mourning Persephone

The De Morgan Foundation and the De Morgan Collection

The De Morgan Foundation owns an unparalleled collection of ceramics and oil paintings by William and Evelyn De Morgan. The husband and wife duo were key proponents of the Arts and Crafts Movement in the late 19th and early 20th Century.

The De Morgan Foundation is a registered, independent charity that receives no revenue funding from the government. All income goes towards managing the care of the De Morgan Collection, loans, tours, research and educational activities. We rely on the generosity of our Friends and supporters to enable us to carry out this important work.
