Designed exclusively for Sir John Soane's Museum by Charlotte Cory, this limited edition square silk scarf has been specially designed for the Charlotte Bronte at the Soane exhibition.
The design is based on the pattern on the dress Charlotte Bronte wore to the famous dinner party given by William Makepeace Thackeray on June 12th 1850. This dress has been brought back to London to Sir John Soane's Museum to celebrate the bicentenary of Charlotte Bronte's birth on April 21st 1816.
Charlotte Cory a London based artist best known for her VISITORIANA - a complete, fantastical, "wholly believable" alternative 19th Century. A post-Darwinian universe of reworked, recycled, collaged and montaged Victorian "carte de visite" photography and her own photography combined with taxidermy. A world in which the animals, or "Visitorians" as we must call them now for they are neither wholly animal nor human being, are clearly in charge. Her works are in the Royal Collection at Windsor and have been shown at art fairs all round the world and frequently also at the Royal Academy of Art Summer Exhibitions in London.
