Erroneously attributed to Edward Burne-Jones for many years due to a forged signature on the canvas, Aurora Triumphans is now considered one of Evelyn De Morgan’s finest paintings. Celebrating the dawn as a time of new beginnings, this picture is a perfect accompaniment to a spring day.

To mark the centenary of this radical feminist artist’s death, De Morgan Foundation Curator Sarah Hardy will give a lecture on the Aurora Triumphans and open a new display of preparatory sketches for her masterpiece.
