A Marriage of Arts & Crafts: Evelyn & William De Morgan @ Delaware Art Museum


This fall, the Delaware Art Museum (DelArt) will host the first retrospective exhibition of the work of Pre-Raphaelite painter Evelyn Pickering De Morgan (1855-1919) and her husband, the stained glass and pottery designer William Frend De Morgan (1839-1917). Making its American debut at DelArt, the exhibition tells the story of this extraordinary creative couple, who engaged with the artistic and social movements of their day. Over 75 works introduce visitors to William's shimmering lustreware ceramics and Evelyn's richly symbolic paintings, inspired by her deep engagement with Italian Renaissance art.

At DelArt, the exhibition will be accompanied by lectures during opening and closing weekends by Sarah Hardy, Curator of the De Morgan Foundation, and Dr. Margaretta Frederick, Curator Emerita at the Delaware Art Museum. Guided tours of the exhibition will be offered weekly on Saturdays at 1 p.m. On view concurrently, "The Forgotten Pre-Raphaelites" will explore work of lesser-known artists associated with the Pre-Raphaelite circle.
