This is the first exhibition in 40 years devoted to the art and career of Eleanor Fortescue-Brickdale, a figure whose work was hugely popular in her lifetime but has been neglected since her death.

Eleanor Fortescue-Brickdale, The Little Foot Page, 1905

A generation younger than the Pre-Raphaelites, she revived their style at the end of the 19th century, adopting the medieval and moral subjects and jewel-like colours that they had favoured. Her works tell stories, reflect her Christian faith and celebrate the beauty of nature – qualities that drew admiration then and now.
