Evelyn De Morgan, S.O.S., 1914-16

Evelyn De Morgan: Artist of Peace

  • 24 April — 13 September 2015 *on now

This exhibition celebrates the artist Evelyn De Morgan (1855-1919), whose remarkable paintings bear the influence of early Italian Renaissance art as well as that of her Pre-Raphaelite contemporaries, yet have a distinctive style that is uniquely her own. As we commemorate the centenary of the First World War, this significant show, comprising loans from the De Morgan Foundation, will focus on De Morgan’s pacifism and reaction both to this conflict and the Boer War of 1899-1902, with many of the works having been included in the artist’s solo exhibition held in the spring of 1916 in aid of the Red Cross.

Suitable for

  • Any age
