About Charlotte Cory, Artist

CHARLOTTE CORY is a London based artist best known for her VISITORIANA - a complete, fantastical, "wholly believable" alternative 19th Century.  A post-Darwinian universe of reworked, recycled, collaged and montaged Victorian "carte de visite" photography and her own photography combined with taxidermy.  This is a world in which the animals - or "Visitorians" as we must call them now for they are neither wholly animal nor entirely human being - are in charge.  Her artworks are in the Royal Collection at Windsor, and have been sold at art fairs all round the world, and exhibited in galleries in Britain, France and Germany, the USA and including the Royal Academy of Art Summer Exhibitions in London.   There are six books of her artwork currently available together with a beautiful set of playing cards and her images can be found on silk scarves and wallpaper.   The Sir John Soane's Museum in London produces an exclusive range of stationery and homeware based on her artwork to sell in their shop.  She divides her time between Greenwich on the Thames and Sancerre on the Loire and is represented by the Woolff Gallery, in Charlotte Street in central London.
