Christiana Herringham: artist, campaigner, collector
This exhibition explores the life of the artist Christiana Herringham (1852-1929) whose collection, along with Thomas Holloway’s, forms the core of the Royal Holloway art holdings.
Widely respected by contemporaries including Roger Fry and Walter Sickert, Herringham supported art causes at home and abroad, fought for women’s rights alongside her friend Millicent Fawcett, and collected art from across the globe. This is the first exhibition of her work in over 70 years and includes many pictures never seen in public before.
Admission free, no booking necessary.
The Picture Gallery is open on Wednesdays 10am-3pm. See the Art Collections page for details.
