About the Author
Betty Elzea is a professional cataloguer and has been a museum curator all her working life. In 1974 she wrote the catalogue for a Sandys exhibition at the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery and has recently written an entry on the artist for the New Dictionary of National Biography. Betty Elzea's knowledge of the life and work of Frederick Sandys is unrivalled - a fact that was clearly recognised by the Norwich Castle Museum, when they asked her to be guest curator at their forthcoming Sandys exhibition in October 2001. She has worked at the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Brighton Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Delaware Art Museum.
