Inspiration - Artists and their Iconic Muses
Alexandra Epps
Tuesday 05 February 2019

The complex relationship between artist and muse has been the inspiration for some of the most significant works of art of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Discover some of the ‘stunners’ of the Pre Raphaelite Brotherhood; Picasso’s forever weeping woman; the 'Mother of American modernism' and many more. Women as different from each other as the artists themselves - women as muses and women as artists in their own right.
