The Eternal Supermodel: Lizzie Siddal and the Feminine Muse
Play • 50 min
Lizzie Siddal was a young working class woman in Victorian London who longed for more. Desperate to be accepted as a poet and a painter, Lizzie found her way into the art scene by becoming the main muse of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. She may be most recognisable face of the art movement, but her own talents were submerged (much like Ophelia) by the demands of the famous men around her. Heidi and Becki muse on the idea of the muse - must they always be female? How have they changed through history? Will anyone make them a sandwich?
