Color, Pattern and
the Victorian Imagination
Guest speaker, Alexandria Volk, educator, practicing artist, art historian, and historical costume specialist, will present a talk/slideshow on how color permeated 19th century life as it never had before:
“Depth of tone, richness of colour, and exquisite gradation of
tints” was present in all aspects of life: Science, religion, rites of
passage – not to mention textiles, wallpaper, and bookbinding.
See beyond the sepia-tone prints to the vivid lives of this era.
