William Powell Frith’s Railway Station, Victorian narrative painting and the stereoscope

Picture Gallery

2019 marks the 200th birthday of William Powell Frith, artist of Royal Holloway Picture Gallery’s beloved Railway Station (1862). Photo historian Denis Pellerin takes us on a journey back in time when photographers were inspired by Frith and other artists to re-stage popular artworks for the stereoscope. Come and see how stereoscopy became a unique – and relatively inexpensive – way of getting art into the middle class parlour.

Admission free, no booking necessary.
