The Enchanted Interior exhibition explores the sinister implications of a popular theme in nineteenth-century painting: the depiction of the interior as a 'gilded cage' in which women are pictured as ornamental objects.

Iconic Pre-Raphaelite paintings by artists such as Edward Burne-Jones and William Holman Hunt will be shown alongside works by their female peers such as Emma Sandys and Evelyn De Morgan, who challenge and subvert the idealisation of women as captive damsels or passive beauties.
