Event description

Description

Evelyn De Morgan was a radical Victorian artist who defied her gender and upper-class upbringing to become a commercially successful, professional artist.

Her style develops from Neo-Classical, Italian Renaissance influenced work, which she was taught at the Slade School of Art, to Pre-Raphaelite canvases, but she never fully subscribed to an art movement, instead using her art to present her socio-political agenda. She painted on themes of women's suffrage, material greed, death, spiritualism and her deep horror at the onset of the First World War, which she abhorred.

2019 marks the centenary of the death of Evelyn De Morgan and the De Morgan Foundation is holding a symposium of papers on all aspects of her work to mark the occasion.

Tickets for the day include:

- Access to all lectures and panel discussions

- Refreshments and a buffet lunch

- An introductory tour of the Guildhall Art Gallery

- An Evelyn De Morgan postcard gift


Confirmed speakers for the day are leading academics on this artist:

- Nic Peeters | Independent Art Historian | Evelyn De Morgan’s Portraiture

- Dr Lucy Ella Rose | Lecturer in Victorian Literature at the University of Surrey | Evelyn De Morgan: Suffragist Painter

- Dr Richenda Roberts | Lecturer in Art History at the University of Warwick | Evelyn De Morgan’s War Paintings
