Dickens's Artistic Daughter, Katey by Lucinda Hawksley

£14.99

Katey Dickens was born into a house if turbulent celebrity and grew up surrounded by fascinating, famous, and infamous people. From a very young age, she knew her vocation was to be an artist. 

Lucinda Hawksley charts the life of a celebrated portrait painter, who redefines our preconceptions about Victorian women. Living to be almost ninety, Katey survived the separation of her parents, and unconventional marriage, love affairs, heartbreak, depression, and the challenges of being a female artist in a male-dominated era.

Compelling and illuminating, Dickens's Artistic Daughter, Katey,  tells the story of as spirited woman who found fame at the centre of the first celebrity phenomenon; it also uncovers the reality of what it was like to be a child of Charles and Catherine Dickens. This biography of Katey, celebrating her artisitc prestige - which saw her compared to Millais - is long overdue. The details of her fascinating life await rediscovery. 

Lucinda Hawksley is an author, broadcaster and public speaker. She has written more than twenty books, including critically acclaimed biographies, art history, social history, the history of London and travel writing. This is her third book about her great great great grandfather, Charles Dickens. Lucinda has appeared on television and radio programmes around the globe. She is a Patron of the Charles Dickens Museum in London.
