Charles Dickens and the Artists

Friday 13 December

A wonderfully visual writer, Dickens’ writing developed out of a tradition where illustrations formed a significant part of both serial and book. He had friendships with several artists, including Augustus Egg, William Powell Frith and John Everett Millais. Dickens influenced Victorian artists who depicted scenes from his novels or drew inspiration from his subjects and characterisations.
