As part of celebrations for its 50th anniversary year Cannon Hall Museum is hosting an exhibition, ‘Painters of Dreams’, exploring the artistic links of the Spencer-Stanhope family in the 19th century. Various members of the Spencer-Stanhope family were artists. John Roddam Spencer-Stanhope became a noted Pre-Raphaelite artist and was friend of artists such as GF Watts, Gabriel Rosetti and John Everett Millais. His niece, Evelyn, (who married the potter William de Morgan) was inspired by her uncle and herself became a successful painter. Cecily Spencer-Stanhope helped her father, Sir Walter, to design the ballroom at Cannon Hall and ‘Fairyland’ in the pleasure grounds. Gertrude Spencer- Stanhope, John Roddam’s sister, was a sculptor. The exhibition contains works from the Cannon Hall collections including ceramics by William de Morgan and bronze sculptures by Gertrude Spencer-Stanhope and loans of paintings by both John Roddam and Evelyn de Morgan from Tate Britain and the de Morgan centre in London.
