The Passions of Richard Dadd

From

To

28 January 2011

Location


An exploration of works painted by the noted Victorian artist, Richard Dadd, during his confinement in the Bethlem Royal Hospital and Broadmoor Hospital.

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.
