Sex and the City: Rethinking the Victorians Series

From the first motion pictures onwards, the Victorian city has captured the imagination of filmmakers and audiences alike. From Sherlock Holmes, Jack the Ripper and Hammer Horror to the bustled heroines of period drama, ideas about sex and the city are never far beneath the surface of London’s panorama on screen.

Join us as we look through the lens of the Victorian art world at the lives of men and women in the period.

The colourful life of one of Britain’s most celebrated painters, J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) is the subject of Mike Leigh’s critically acclaimed biographical drama, starring Timothy Spall, for which he won the Best Actor award at Cannes.
