Opening today at Watts Gallery (until 17 March 2019), Christina Rossetti: Vision & Verse brings together paintings, illustrations, works on paper and photography to tell a new and intriguing story about one of the UK’s best-loved poets.
Presenting portraits of the poet and highlights of the many visual images inspired by her words – alongside Rossetti’s own intriguing and virtually unknown drawings – this exhibition will consider Christina Rossetti’s complex attitude to visual art, recognising the enduring appeal of Rossetti’s verse to visual artists from the 1850s through to the present day.
