Event Navigation


Two compelling novels summon up the Spanish Court of King Philip IV, patron of Diego Velázquez (Painter to the KingAmy Sackville), and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (The Doll FactoryElizabeth Macneal).

Painter to the King is an engrossing fictional study of visual art as well as a portrait of the relationship between Velázquez and his royal patron.

The Doll Factory is inspired by the life of Lizzie Siddal, Pre-Raphaelite muse and painter. It is a tale of art, love and obsession.

What are the challenges of transforming artists and their milieu into fiction?

Chaired by Nicolette Jones.
