Cannon Hall goes Digital for De Morgan Month
Cannon Hall Museum, Park and Gardens is taking part in De Morgan Month by sharing a whole host of digital content throughout April, relating to the De Morgan family and their outstanding collection of work.
Throughout the month they will be sharing online tours, films, object information and gems of family history that will interest fans of Pre-Raphaelite art via their social media and digital channels.
The Museum is home to the De Morgan Collection which is displayed on the top floor of the stunning Georgian Country House. It celebrates the Victorian artists’ links to the Spencer Stanhope family who once called the beautiful museum their home. A highlight of the work on display is ‘The Women of Sorrento’ by Roddam Spencer Stanhope which he painted in Italy, a country which would become his home from 1880. The Museum and its collections are free for visitors to enjoy.
Lynn Dunning, Head of Barnsley Museums said: “We are so lucky to host the De Morgan Collection in Barnsley, the work on display is exquisite and a highlight of the Pre-Raphaelite movement. It will be a fascinating month with lots of surprising and interesting content being shared and we hope people will come and visit us in person to further explore the collections.”
