Artist of Peace

If you're planning a holiday around Lake Windermere during the summer, take note that today Blackwell The Arts & Crafts House opened Evelyn De Morgan: Artist of Peace, which runs until 13 September. Wife of Arts & Crafts ceramicist William de Morgan, Evelyn was a prolific artist in the style of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. She was also a supporter of the suffragette movement and a pacifist. Many of her works chosen for Blackwell were included in her solo exhibition held in the spring of 1916 in aid of the Red Cross, her pacifist contribution to the war effort. Shown is her S.O.S. (1914-16) short for Save Our Souls (CLICK).
