This talk introduces the various personalities involved and will examine Rossetti's painted representations of these women in the rather complicated context of attitudes towards women at that time. 


 Linda holds two first class degrees in Art History and has a broad knowledge of art historical subjects, but specialises in British Art and 20th century art.  She is an experienced lecturer and guide, especially at Tate Britain and Tate Modern.
