De Morgan Goes Digital

This year, the De Morgan Foundation has partnered with Google Arts & Culture to have the Google Art Camera capture high resolution, gigapixel images of the oil paintings in the collection. The images available are so detailed that even conservators haven't seen these delectable oils in such detail before.

The De Morgan Collection is vast, comprising some 60 oils paintings, 800 ceramics and an archive of materials pertaining to the artists who created them. Evelyn De Morgan (1855 – 1919), was a radical feminist and spiritualist painter who redeveloped the Pre-Raphaelite style, and her husband, William De Morgan (1839 – 1917), the leading ceramicist of William Morris's Arts and Crafts movement.

Since the collection was bequeathed 1965, it has been displayed through loans to other museums or kept locked away in store, and minimal information has been available online. You can now search all of the paintings on the Google Arts and Culture Platform, to enjoy the collection in one place, wherever you are in the world.
