I shall let the exhibition’s creator the artist and writer Charlotte Cory sum it up in her own words: “I am thrilled to be curating Charlotte Brontë at the Soane on the anniversary of her birth. There is no evidence that Charlotte Brontë visited the Soane – but she should have done! She did most of the other things in her guide book and she would have loved the place. I canʼt think of a better 200th birthday present than to bring her here. The exhibition is fun but informative, touching and thought-provoking, and what is wonderful is that the Museum is exactly the same today as when she could have visited it. When you walk through the Soaneʼs front door you might as well be Charlotte Brontë back in 1850.”
