In conjunction with the exhibition The Book Beautiful Movement: Selections from the Private Press Movement, join us to learn more about the impact of foundational artist and thinker William Morris for a lecture by Victoria Hepburn, a Yale University instructor and researcher at the Yale Center for British Art. Victoria Hepburn is an expert on nineteenth-century British art and has written and taught widely on William Morris and the book arts. 

Hepburn’s  essay “The Kelmscott Press,” appears in the catalog Designing an Earthly Paradise, which accompanied an exhibition on William Morris at the Cleveland Museum of Art in 2017. She was co-curator of Unto this Last: Two-Hundred Years of John Ruskin, on view at the Yale Center for British Art in September 2019 and at the Watts Gallery (UK) in 2020. Hepburn’s research on Pre-Raphaelite art has been supported by the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art and Princeton University. In 2021, she was the Amy P. Goldman Fellow in Pre-Raphaelite Studies at the Delaware Art Museum. She is currently a researcher at the Yale Center for British Art.
