About this Event:

Can a wife be a muse, and can a muse be a wife? Henrietta Garnett and Jenny Uglow discuss interpretations of these terms, and their meaning in relation to the inspiration the Pre-Raphaelites drew from women such as Lizzie Siddall, Effie Gray, and Janey Morris. What mystery did these women possess that this artistic brotherhood found so compelling?

Garnett’s Wives and Stunners: The Pre-Raphaelites and Their Muses evokes a vivid picture not just of the tangled love affairs of the group, but also of their day-to-day lives – their clothes, their homes, and their work, illuminating both the private and the public of their world. Uglow is an award-winning biographer. She will be discussing her latest work, The Pinecone, at a separate festival event.
