Kate Bunce, Melody (Music), 1895/1897, oil on canvas, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, Birmingham, UK

 

I had never heard of Kate Bunce (1856-1927) until I saw the haunting Melody (Music) above on the cover of a book about Pre-Raphaelite female painters. Few details of Bunce’s life and career are available; she did study and work primarily in Birmingham, England, where she excelled in creating portraits of women influenced by the Medieval and Renaissance periods as well as church panels.
