Illustration, Titillation and Rampant Sexualities in late 19th Century Britain
Originally intended as a talk at The Cut, Halesworth, we’re excited to see Fiona FitzGerald has made this into an event we can now attend via the online video conferencing system, Zoom.
The undercover oddness of Pre-Raphaelite painting, with its pussy footing around sex, receives a jolt around 1890. Artists coming from an amoral position as Aesthetes, use print media to present disturbing complex visions around desire. Fiona will examine this shift in connection with artists Aubrey Beardsley, Ricketts and Shannon, and the writer, Oscar Wilde.
This talk relates to the erstwhile Aubrey Beardsley Exhibition at Tate Britain
It will take place on Sat 25th April at 11 am and Wed. 29th April at 10.30 am.
Tickets are £8 or £5
