Friday, April 15:

The Division of Art History is pleased to present Susan P. Casteras, Professor of Art History at the University of Washington. Her lecture will explore such aspects as the commodification of Pre-Raphaelitism, the "Pre-Raphaelization" of the Victorian heroine in novels and mystery books by American and British authors, comic book versions of the legendary lives of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Elizabeth Siddal, and other unusual objects that attest to the ongoing obsession in the 21st century with Pre-Raphaelite artists, objects, and themes.

This lecture is free and open to the public, with a reception to follow.
