Evelyn de Morgan & others @ National Portrait Gallery

17 October 2019 - 26 January 2020

160 years after the first pictures were exhibited by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1849, Pre-Raphaelite Sisters, explores the overlooked contribution of twelve women to movement, including Evelyn de Morgan, Effie Millais (nee Gray), Elizabeth Siddal and Joanna Wells (nee Boyce), whose work was largely omitted from the history of the movement.

The exhibition features new discoveries and unseen works from public and private collections across the world, revealing the women behind the pictures, through paintings, photographs, manuscripts and personal items.  Pre-Raphaelite Sisters explores the significant roles they played as artists, models, muses and helpmeets who supported and sustained the artistic output of the Pre-Raphaelite movement.
