The Art of Bedlam: Richard Dadd
- 16 June — 1 November 2015 *on now
Dadd was one of the most gifted artists of the early Victorian period, making his name with imaginative Shakespearean images. Despite later suffering from severe mental illness and spending much of his career in psychiatric hospitals, Dadd continued to create beautiful and haunting pictures including masterpieces such as The Fairy Feller’s Master-Stroke.
William & Evelyn De Morgan
- 4 August 2015 — 13 April 2016 *on now
The De Morgan Collection features ceramics and oil paintings from William De Morgan (1839-1917) and Evelyn Pickering (1855-1919).
The De Morgans were not only close friends of the Wattses, with William advising Mary artistically throughout their friendship, but were also key figures of the Arts & Crafts Movement.
The remarkable ceramics and oil paintings, on loan from the De Morgan Foundation, will provide an insight into their working relationships and reveal their extraordinary talents in multiple mediums.
