Latest News on Richard Dadd

Last month we alerted blog readers to the mini-exhibition of works by Dadd at the Archives & Museum here at Bethlem, and to a talk given by author Nicholas Tromans at its opening. Dadd aficionados will be interested to learn that Nicholas has just published an article on Dadd in the online journal The Public Domain Review; and that Bethlem’s Dadd exhibition has been extended to Saturday 5 May (when the Archives & Museum and the Bethlem Gallery will be open from 11am to 5pm).

      As far as we’re aware, Dadd didn’t have any children (he certainly didn’t marry before he came to Bethlem). He did have a number of siblings, so perhaps there was a nephew called Philip. Where did you come across the relation?
