English, 1855-1919

A Visionary Painter of Spiritual Feminism and Pacifism

Evelyn De Morgan (1855–1919) was an English painter associated with the Pre-Raphaelite movement, renowned for her allegorical and symbolic works. Her art often explored themes of spirituality, feminism, and social justice, depicted through rich, vibrant colors and meticulous detail. De Morgan’s paintings, such as “The Angel of Death” and “The Soul’s Prison House,” frequently featured strong, ethereal female figures and drew inspiration from mythology and literature. Alongside her husband, ceramicist William De Morgan, she contributed significantly to the aesthetic and philosophical dimensions of late 19th and early 20th-century British art.
