The Muse, a Play by Palimsest at Leighton House Museum

Following the sell-out success of The Muse during A Victorian Obsession exhibition (Leighton House Museum, November 2014 – April 2015), Leighton House Museum is delighted to be working again with Palimpsest theatre, film and web company to restage this multi-media play that explores the relationship between Frederic, Lord Leighton, one of the most influential Victorian artists and President of the Royal Academy (1878 – 1896) and Dorothy Dene (aka Ada Pullan), his model, muse and confidante. Staged in Leighton's studio, where Dorothy so often posed for the artist, and based on extensive new research, The Muse is a must see.
