This collection of brooches featuring Charlotte Cory's Visitorian (based on 19th Century cartes-de-visite photographic calling cards) celebrates all those who enjoyed visiting Sir John Soane's Museum in the past. Just like today, they would sign their names in the visitor's book at the entrance and then walk round the house marvelling at Sir John's treasures.
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.
Wooden brooch presented in a box.
