An absorbing exhibition showing photographs of 15 Evelyn De Morgan paintings lost to a fire more than 20 years ago, accompanied by drawings and studies for the paintings. De Morgan's distinctive rich use of colour and allegory was drawn from influences including classical and Renaissance art, and political and social issues were addressed by her too, making the works as relevant today as they were more than a century ago when she created them.
