About this Event
Evelyn De Morgan was definitely a mover and shaker of the Pre-Raphaelite movement and who better to tell us why than author of ‘Pre-Raph Girl Gang’, Kirsty Stonell Walker.
In her incredible 20-year career as a Victorian historian, Kirsty Stonell Walker has written the only biography of Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s most notorious model and muse, Fanny Cornforth. In 2014, she published a novel based on the life of Alexa Wilding, ‘Pre-Raphaelite Muse and Woman of Mystery’. Her novel ‘We Are Villains All’, published in 2015, is a murder mystery set around the lives of a Victorian poet and his best friend, a photographer. Published in the autumn of 2018, ‘Pre-Raphaelite Girl Gang’ reveals the lives of Pre-Raphaelite models, muses and artists, lushly illustrated by portraits by renown illustrator and artist, Kingsley Nebechi, alongside the wonderful original paintings. Kirsty has written The Kissed Mouth blog (www.fannycornforth.blogspot.com) since 2011, airing Victorian dirty linen in a humorous and thought-provoking way.
We can’t wait to catch up with Kirsty on these amazing women.
