The Drama of the Soul: Phoebe Anna Traquair at National Museums Scotland
Using the collections of National Museums Scotland, this lecture will explore some of the ideas and movements that inspired Traquair, including contemporary science, artistic movements such as the Pre-Raphaelites, as well as a number of philosophical, mythological and spiritual ideas. It will examine the ways in which these influences were manifested in her work, as well as the incredible diversity of her artistic practice which encompassed oil painting, watercolours, murals, bookbinding, illuminated manuscripts, enamels and embroideries. Dr Sally-Anne Huxtable is Principal Curator of Modern & Contemporary Design at National Museums Scotland, where in 2016 she curated the permanent gallery Design for Living, which, for the first time, brings together the museum's collection of works by Phoebe Anna Traquair. She is also Editor of the Review of the Pre-Raphaelite Society.
