Creative Couples of London — Elizabeth Siddal & Laura Alma-Tadema (Online)

Elizabeth Siddal began her artistic career as a model for several of the Pre-Raphaelites, including Dante Gabriel Rossetti. As they developed both a professional and personal relationship, eventually marrying, Elizabeth and Dante often worked together in the same studio as Elizabeth worked as an artist. Elizabeth was the only female artist to exhibit with the Pre-Raphaelites. Laura Epps also began as a student and model for Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. They eventually married and Laura exhibited at the London Royal Academy, the Paris Salon, and the 1878 Paris International Exposition, one of only two English women to exhibit. Explore how each of their artistic lives reflected the historic events of their time. Led by Martha Chiarchiaro, owner of Seeing History, who has brought history to life through the art of the times for more than 30 years. She received her Masters’ degree in the History of Art from Williams College and provides a variety of art history presentations at the Worcester Art Museum, the Worcester Institute for Senior Education (WISE), libraries, senior centers, and garden clubs.
