A Parsonage Unwrapped alert from the Brontë Parsonage Museum:
Brontë 200: Parsonage Unwrapped
Branwell Brontë and His Artistic Circle
April 28, 7:30 PM

Instead he found himself trying to make a living out of painting portraits of the more prosperous residents of Haworth and Bradford. Jane Sellars, co-author of The Art of the Brontës and former Director of the Brontë Parsonage Museum, looks at Branwell’s provincial art career in Yorkshire and compares it with life in the artistic circles of London to which he aspired.
