DETAILS OF EVENT:
In an exploration of the celebrated Victorian poet’s significant connection with visual art, Christina Rossetti: Vision & Verse, will bring together paintings, illustrations, works on paper and photography.
Presenting portraits of the poet and highlights of the many visual images inspired by her words – alongside Rossetti’s own intriguing and virtually unknown drawings – this exhibition will consider Christina Rossetti’s complex attitude to visual art, recognising the enduring appeal of Rossetti’s verse to visual artists from the 1850s through to the present day.
Christina Rossetti (1830–1894) is among the greatest of English Victorian poets. Born in London to an intellectually minded Anglo-Italian family, Rossetti was the youngest of four supremely talented children, all of whom succeeded as artists and writers.
