A set of five different Christmas cards designed by Charlotte Cory. Inside each card is the greeting 'Seasons Greetings' as well as some individual messages. They are Visitorians (based on 19th photographic calling cards, carte-de-visites) and where better to visit and linger than Sir John’s Museum. There was always, by tradition, a resident cat at the Museum and of course Lady Soane had her little Manchester terrier, Fanny - but now, thanks to me, the Museum also has crocodiles, stoats, mice, rats, bears and tigers…
Charlotte Cory is 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.
