How did a girl from Southwark slum rise to become one of the supermodels of the age? This course will look at Siddal’s life, her relationship with Dante Gabriel Rossetti, her addiction to laudanum and her suicide. She is one of the most recognised faces in British art but what is less well known is that she was an artist in her own right. Looking at works in which she appeared and those which she painted herself we will try to cast light on the enigma that is Lizzie Siddall.
