An exploration of works painted by the noted Victorian artist, Richard Dadd, during his confinement in the Bethlem Royal Hospital and Broadmoor Hospital. The exhibition investigates Dadd’s expression of emotions ranging from agony to joy and hatred to love; passions which Victorian society expected to be suppressed. Rarely exhibited paintings executed by Dadd whilst in Broadmoor Hospital will be shown alongside Bethlem’s unrivalled collection of his Sketches to Illustrate the Passions.
