Evelyn De Morgan @ Laing Art Gallery

10 August 2020 - 26 September 2020

Evelyn and William De Morgan have been described as ‘two of the rarest spirits of the age’.   Evelyn’s paintings bear the influence of early Italian Renaissance art as well as that of her Pre-Raphaelite contemporaries, yet have a distinctive style.  In addition, her paintings projected her political concerns, and she created many pictures in response to the First World War conflict. This exhibition showcases her peace paintings and the preparatory drawings she made for them, giving an overview of her working process and ideals.

This exhibition explores the exceptional work created by this pair of very different and equally intriguing 19th/20th century British artists.
