Florence Nightingale: A Reluctant Life in Portraits by Natasha McEnroe

December 10 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

£6.00

Florence Nightingale disliked having her portrait taken as much as she hated being a celebrity, yet it was largely through the visual representations of her face and person in the press that she gained iconic status in Victorian England. Used as a model by her artistic and adoring sister and cousin, sketches of the young Nightingale contrast sharply with the photographs and paintings of her later years, when the pressures of her work and ill health are very apparent. Representations of this most famous daughter of the Midlands tell us as much about attitudes of her time as they do about the reality of her life.
