Lecture by Brian Eaton on “Discovering Fanny Eaton - Daughter of a Slave and Inspiration for Pre-Raphaelite Artists”



Venue: John Peek Conference Room, Birmingham & Midland Institute, 9 Margaret Street, Birmingham. B3 3BS. @ 11.00 am (Reception from 10.30 am)



Lecture Details:

Brian’s lecture will follow his search for the real Fanny Eaton, finding her name in the 1881 census. He will tell us what her life was like in Victorian England, how he met some of her descendants and heard their family stories, and how with the help of Jan March, the National Portrait Gallery and others, Fanny has been bought out of the shadows.



Brian Eaton is the great grandson of Fanny Eaton. He was Works Manager for an international steel fabrication company, far removed from the art world. He was prompted by his father’s stories to go in search of his ancestor.
