Linton Antique Society’s April talk

On 12 April at 7.30 pm in Linton Memorial Hall, Suzanne Fagence Cooper, art historian and author of The Model Wife: The Passionate Lives of Effie Gray, Ruskin and Millais, will present her talk postponed from February. She will reveal the vital part women played in the lives of the Pre-Raphaelite group of artists: the tragic Elizabeth Siddall, artist, model and wife of Rossetti; Effie Gray, Millais’ wife and model; and the ‘stunner’ Jane Morris, wife of William and Rossetti’s model and lover.

The talk, the last in the current season, will be preceded by the Society’s AGM. Entrance £7 for non-members. Members, free. For more information about the Society, visit the Society’s website
