Dear Reader,

Eleanor has explored Women in the history of Derbyshire.

Museum and Art Gallery

From 16 September 2017 to 19 November 2017

As per opening times at Museum and Art Gallery

An exhibition of paintings by Eleanor Watson the winner of the seventh Jonathan Vickers Fine Art Award.

For the last year Eleanor has explored the life stories of a selection of influential Women in the history of Derbyshire. The collection includes interiors, gardens, landscapes and still lives; from photographs taken and found and film stills each connected to a famous protagonist, with biographical elements to prompt a reading of their story. The viewpoint is brought into question as the figure is often absent. There is a suggestion that the viewer may have just disturbed the private world of the sitter.
