Three Graces Go Live

Posted on 28 February 2014

The Three Graces: Victorian women, visual art and exchange online exhibition and catalogue of works is live to view on the Department of History of Art's Research Portal

Mariana, Marie Spartali Stillman,1868 (Private collection)

The exhibition and catalogue entries explore the work of three specific women artists of the period - Aglaia (née Ionides) Coronio (1834-1906), Maria (née Cassavetti) Zambaco (1843-1914) and Marie (née Spartali) Stillman (1843-1927) - who have remained largely misunderstood as incidental artists whose art is considered secondary to, and imitative of, their better-known male counterparts.

This addition to the Research Portal is a result of the larger Three Graces project, which included various cultural engagement events, also documented on the Portal site. The project was made possible thanks to an AHRC Cultural Engagement Fellowship undertaken by Dr Katie Tyreman at the Victoria & Albert Museum for the Department of History of Art and Humanities Research Centre from February to May 2013."
