A Family of Artists: The De Morgan Collection and Cannon Hall
On display at Cannon Hall Museum is a hand-picked selection of artworks from the De Morgan Collection. It is an unparalleled collection of work by the late 19th and early 20th century ceramicist William De Morgan and his artist wife Evelyn Pickering De Morgan.
Many of the works have never before been on public display and include grand, sweeping canvases such as Evelyn De Morgan's Boreas and Oreithyia, delicate drawings, curious decorative arts such as Evelyn De Morgan's highly recognisable, brightly coloured and detailed ceramics are on long term display in the upper rooms of the museum. The must-see pieces are on long term display and will take up long term residency in the upper rooms of the museum.
'A Family of Artists' is the only place in the North of England where De Morgan pieces can be viewed in all their glory on a lasting basis. This long-term partnership with Cannon Hall forms part of the De Morgan Foundation's commitment to providing wider public access to the collection. Cannon Hall will also become a key member of the network of De Morgan Collection exhibitions and loans in the UK and around the world.
As well as enjoying beautiful works of art, visitors can also explore the strong links between Cannon Hall's most famous residents, the Spencer-Stanhopes and the De Morgans.
