'Moves female creatives from the margins of a historical era and puts them at the center.... revelatory' - Atlantic
A handsome book telling untold story of the women of Pre-Raphaelite art - the exhibition catalogue for a show at the National Portrait Gallery
Pre-Raphaelite Sisters, explores the overlooked contribution of twelve women to the Pre-Raphaelite movement, including Evelyn de Morgan, Effie Millais (née Gray), Elizabeth Siddal and Joanna Wells (née Boyce), an artist whose work has been largely omitted from the history of the movement.
Featuring new discoveries and unseen works from public and private collections across the world, the exhibition reveals the women behind the pictures. Through paintings, photographs, manuscripts and personal items, Pre-Raphaelite Sisters explores the significant roles they played as artists, models, muses and helpmeets who supported and sustained the artistic output of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.
