Dr Barbara White
‘Finding Fanny Murray: The Woman & The Myth’
Author of ‘Queen of the Courtesans‘
Fanny Murray, the daughter of an impoverished musician from Bath and the most desired courtesan of the 1750s, took London society by storm, not only as the most prized ‘purchasable beauty’ of her day but also as a fashion icon and muse to poets, artists and writers. Barbara White’s portraits takes readers from the brothels of Covent Garden to sex romps at Medmenham Abbey, to refined drawing rooms in London and marital respectability in Edinburgh.
Wine and nibbles will be served!
Undergraduates, postgraduates and academic staff welcome!
