Reinstating Lizzie Siddal as an important and influential artist and poet, this is only the second solo exhibition of her work.

Although a professional member of the Pre-Raphaelite artistic circle, Siddal is mainly remembered today as the model for the iconic Millais painting, Ophelia (1851-2), and as the wife and muse of the Pre-Raphaelite artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

This exhibition 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.
