Catalogue Note

Kate Perugini was the daughter of Charles Dickens, wife to artist Charles Edward Perugini, model to Sir John Everett Millais, and an accomplished artist (see lot 593).  Perugini exhibited widely including at the Woman’s Building, built for the World’s Columbian Exposition held in Chicago in 1893.  The result of women petitioning for an official place in the planning and exhibitions of the fair, and with an organizing board of 117 “lady managers”, The Woman’s Building featured exhibits of works by women across fields from art, music, and science.
