Art History Mornings at The Beecroft Gallery

Saturday 28th July, 10.30am-12.30pm

with Dr ML Banting

A Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood

Whilst many of us know the works of the Pre-Raphaelite Brothers, the women artists in their circle were just as radical.

Today we’ll focus on Elizabeth Siddal, Joanna Mary Wells, Barbara Leigh Smith and others, their stories and art-works, to suggest a Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood.
