Charlotte Bronte 11x14 Print


"I am no bird, and no net ensnares me." - Charlotte Brontë

Despite being the daughters of a vicar and growing up in a parsonage, Anne, Charlotte, and Emily Brontë were a wild bunch. At an early age, they demonstrated their creativity by inventing a fantastical land called Gondal. Knowing their father would disapprove of the romantic stories they concocted, they transcribed them in handwriting so small, no adult could hope to read it.  To capture this sense of sisterhood, we drew inspiration from the Three Graces (Charites) of Greek mythology. Portrayed many times by painters and sculptors alike, they have come to represent many things, ranging from the feminine (charm, beauty, creativity) to the moral (faith, hope, love) to the agonistic (Hera, Aphrodite and Athena), to the creative (experience, inspiration, craft) to the unbreakable bond of kinship (Foedus Inviolabile).
