‘I Wake Again’: Holly Trostle Brigham on Elizabeth Siddal

February 26 @ 10:00 am - May 29 @ 4:00 pm

Free with Museum Admission

In this exhibition Philadelphia-based figurative painter Holly Trostle Brigham investigates the life work of pre-Raphaelite artist, model, and muse Elizabeth Eleanor Siddal. Brigham’s interest in recovering women and women artists whose names have disappeared from the historic record is here focused on Siddal’s noteworthy creative output. Through the creation of an artist’s book tracing the life of Siddal, Brigham reclaims her story and re-positions her first and foremost as artist and poet. Historically recalled solely for her role as muse to Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Everett Millais and others of the Pre-Raphaelite circle, Siddal left a significant (if limited due to her early death) body of visual and written work. Brigham visually recaptures Siddal’s own creativity with this contemporary reflection on her many-sided full and dynamic life.
