Men in Pants: Curator-led tour of Evelyn de Morgan's Male Life Drawings

14 February 2014 at 11:15 am - 1:00 pm

Curator Claire Longworth will lead us through the newly opened exhibition of Men in Pants which displays Evelyn De Morgan’s skilful and creative male life drawings from her time at the Slade School of Art.   She was one of the first 3 women to enrol in 1873.   The Slade was the first art school in Britain to offer female students life-drawing classes.  Alas, male models were partially draped for modesty’s benefit.  Even so, this was a bold innovation in art training and attracted much criticism. http://www.demorgan.org.uk/   Following the private tour, we will have coffee, tea and biscuits and can explore the rest of the centre at our leisure. Patrons/Friends/Guests: £10.  RSVP to rsvp@UKFriendsofNMWA.org and post cheque to UK Friends of NMWA, Box 539, 28 Old Brompton Road, London SW7 3SS For additional background, read The De Morgans, written by Jenny Kinglsey for Cassone. Closest tube:  East Putney (10 minute walk); nearest Rail station: Putney Mainline.  For direct access to the De Morgan Centre, turn right just past Wandsworth Museum’s reception.
