Lizzie Siddal @ Wightwick Manor & Gardens

1 March 2018 - 24 December 2018

Lizzie Siddal was an important and influential artist and poet.  A professional member of the Pre-Raphaelite artistic circle, she is, however, remembered today mainly as the model for the iconic Millais painting, Ophelia, and as wife and muse of the Pre-Raphaelite artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
‘Beyond Ophelia’ examines Siddal’s style; subject matter; depiction of women; her influence on other artists; and the prejudice she faced as a professional female artist in the patriarchal Victorian art world.
