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.
All events in our lecture series include an opportunity to meet the guest lecturer, coffee and cakes and a special tour of the Castle.
