Evelyn De Morgan Night and Sleep, oil on canvas, 423/4362in (1093158cm)


Pre-Raphaelite Sisters, currently showing at the National Portrait Gallery in London, explores the overlooked contribution of women to the iconic artistic movement. New discoveries and unseen work from both public and private collections reveal how these women were pivotal to the Pre- Raphaelite Brotherhood – as models, sitters, partners, poets and artists in their own right. The exhibition features 12 women: Joanna Wells, Fanny Cornforth, Marie-Spartal Stillman, Evelyn de Morgan, Christina Rossetti, Georgiana Burne-Jones, Effie Millais, Elizabeth Siddal, Maria Zambaco, Jane Morris, Annie Miller and Fanny Eaton. A number of events have been organised to coincide with the exhibition, including: In Conversation: Rediscovering Fanny Eaton on January 10, 7pm; and In Conversation: Pre-Raphaelite Sisters: A Legacy on January 24, 7pm. In his lunchtime lecture on January 16, 1.15pm, art historian and curator, Christopher Newall, looks at how the Pre- Raphaelites have been perceived and appreciated retrospectively in Pre-Raphaelitism – the Critical Seesaw. There’s also an opportunity to immerse yourself in The Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood: Art, Music and More in a weekend workshop in the Education Studio on January 11 and 12, 11am to 5pm.
