Many Beautiful Things: Lilias Trotter and John Ruskin in conversation about art and life: Monday 8th April 4-6pm, Coslett 117

This event will include a short talk from Lizzie Ludlow and some discussion about the female artist Lillias Trotter, who decided to sacrifice the opportunity of becoming a protégé of John Ruskin to follow a call to missionary work in Algeria.  We will think about Trotter’s life and work and the recent work – including the 2015 documentary film – that has been done to recuperate her legacy.
