Mary Evelyn de Morgan

Mary Evelyn de Morgan was a British painter associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Movement. Her works famously contain themes of the female figure, spirituality, pacifism, and a rejection of material wealth– with a heavy emphasis on allegory to do so. DeMorga specialized in literary subjects for most of her career. A protofeminist, De Morgan was the first woman to enroll in the Slade School of Art and later dropped her Christian name ‘Mary’ to go by her middle name, Evelyn, as it was gender-neutral for the time and allowed for her works to be judged for merit, rather than on the basis of her gender. De Morgan successfully exhibited her works in several galleries and had a solo show at the Wolverhampton Municipal Art Gallery and Museum.
