Leeds to London; Socialist to Anglican. The story of Emily Fords life is one of shifting beliefs, colliding ideologies and unexpected connections. How and why did Fords journey unfold in the way that it did? Follow our exhibition from The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery to the Great Hall to discover Fords story and art works.
An artist from Leeds, Fords work was influenced heavily by the Pre-Raphaelite painting style. While her religious and ideological beliefs evolved throughout her life, one thing that remained steadfast was her dedication to womens rights activism. Swaying from her socialist doctrine to the budding Victorian Spiritualist movement, Ford took her commitment for social reform to new and unexpected places.
