Ellen Terry


During the late nineteenth century, Ellen Terry (1847–1928) stood at the center of Victorian culture as an actress and a model for painters and photographers. This contextual exhibition explores the story of her career through painting and prints. The exhibit is divided into five sections, including a short biography, public images of Terry dressed for her roles, public images of Terry away from the stage, private images of Terry’s home life, concluding with a glimpse of her home, Smallhythe Place, which is now the Ellen Terry Memorial Museum.
