To celebrate the exhibition ‘The De Morgans: Two of the Rarest Spirits of the Age’ reopening at the Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle

About this Event

Pour yourself a glass, sit back, relax, and enjoy!

The talk will focus primarily on just what Sir Edward Poynter meant when he described the artists as ‘rare spirits’. What was it that set them apart from William Morris, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones and their other contemporaries.

We will ‘visit’ Leighton House in London’s fashionable Holland Park, Villa Nuti in Florence, and of course the Laing exhibition, all from the comfort of home.

Recommended donation is £5
