'Uncommon Power': Lucy and Catherine Madox Brown

About

Uncommon Power: Lucy and Catherine Madox Brown spotlights the work of two creative women who grew up at the heart of the Pre-Raphaelite world. Commonly referred to as the daughters of the British painter Ford Madox Brown, both Lucy Rossetti (1843-1894) and Catherine Hueffer (1850-1927) were talented, professional artists in their own right.
In 1876, both Rossetti and Hueffer featured in Ellen Clayton's English Female Artists, a two-volume 'roll call of honourable names' and artist biographies. Despite this, they remain relatively unknown today. The objective of this pivotal exhibition is to shine a light on these sister-artists, and to call for the critical attention that their work merits, for the first time, explore their lives, art and feminist legacies.
Uncommon Power: Lucy and Catherine Madox Brown is co-curated by Dr Ruth Brimacombe, independent art historian and former Collections Curator (19th Century) at the National Portrait Gallery, London.
