This seminar looks at the case of Victorian artists, male and female, who were well-known in their day but have since come to occupy a marginal position in the history of British art.

Overlooked Victorian Artists - Sir Charles Eastlake

Overlooked Victorian Artists - John Brett

Overlooked Victorian Artists - Annie Louisa Swynnerton, A.R.A

Overlooked Victorian Artists - Louise Jopling

The art and life of Louise Jopling (1843-1933) is unusually well documented for a 19th century female artist through her private papers, public pronouncements on art matters and through the press. Dr. Patricia de Montfort considers how research on Jopling can help to bring the work of other neglected artists (especially women) to a wider audience.

Overlooked Victorian Artists - Herbert Draper

Overlooked Victorian Artists - Christina Herringham

Overlooked Victorian Artists - Frank Cadogan Cowper

Overlooked Victorian Artists - The Lost Generation, 1880-1920

Overlooked Victorian Artists - Reputation and Representation

In this event we examine the historiographic and museological reasons for their neglect and consider how far new approaches to curating and research may help rehabilitate reputation.

Programmed by Professor Liz Prettejohn, Head of Department and Professor of History of Art, University of York and Rebecca Milner, Curator: Collections Access (Fine Art), Manchester Art Gallery in collaboration with Alison Smith, Lead Curator, 19th Century British Art, Tate.
