Through the Artist’s Gaze: The Feminine Ideal in E.A. Hornel’s Work

Both in his photographs and paintings, Edward Atkinson Hornel (1864-1933) portrayed numerous young women, studying their forms and detailing their poses. While doing so however, he revealed much more about his perception of women than their stories.  Marianne Fossaluzza is a PhD student in Visual Culture at the University of Aberdeen, researching the photographic collection of E.A. Hornel. She has also worked with the National Trust for Scotland since 2017.

Free but booking is essential - please book online or phone the City Art Centre reception on 0131 529 3993.
