Julie Roberts: The New Woman Artist
Date: 13 December 2006 – 25 February 2007
Space: Gallery 3

Julie Roberts’ first solo show at GoMA was divided into three collections of work; Girls Painting, The Dead Artists and The Good Wife.

Roberts created paintings based on archive black-and-white photos from the beginning of the 20th century showing women artists at the beginning of their career. The series of watercolours The Good Wife is inspired by housewives’ manuals from the 1930s and the work from Pre-Raphaelite artist Ford Madox Brown.
