Title: The Sense of Sight

Artist: Annie Louisa Swynnerton

Created: England 1895

Location: Walter Art Gallery, Liverpool, UK


Annie Louisa Swynnerton was an English painter of allegorical, figure and portrait paintings. She became good friends with John Singer Sargent (painter of Rosina Ferrara 1878) who appreciated her work and also helped her to become the first women elected as a member of the Royal Arts Academy of Arts in 1922. Swynnerton was also a noted feminist and suffragist. Annie founded the Manchester Society of Women Painters, which offered education in art and exhibitions.

Aurora showcases the never-ending, always-changing power of art and its ability to influence generations across time. The portraits in Aurora, by local photographers Ike and Tash, feature 19 young people from all over the South Sound. These portraits highlight youth as the subjects of remixed and reimagined versions of well-known works of art. The show empowers youth to see themselves in new ways and inspires young people to connect with works of art from other times and places.
