Ep 142 - Evelyn de Morgan - art's groundbreaking golden girl
This week we are delighted to be joined by Sarah Hardy of the De Morgan Foundation to talk about one of the art world's groundbreakers, Evelyn de Morgan.
An exhibition at the fantastic Leighton House takes a unique look at her Gold Drawings, which uses her very unique style of painting with gold cake to create some seriously impressive images.
