About Digital Lecture: Through the Artist’s Gaze: The Feminine Ideal in E.A. Hornel’s Work

** This event will now be run online. Booking is still required. Attendees will be sent joining instructions the day before the event. **

Both in his photographs and paintings, Edward Atkinson Hornel (1864-1933) portrayed numerous young women, studying their forms and detailing their poses. While doing so however, he revealed much more about his perception of women than their stories. Marianne Fossaluzza is a PhD student in Visual Culture at the University of Aberdeen, researching the photographic collection of E.A. Hornel. She has also worked with the National Trust for Scotland since 2017.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Digital Lecture: Through the Artist’s Gaze: The Feminine Ideal in E.A. Hornel’s Work are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
