Speak Its Name! In partnership with the National Portrait Gallery

Speak its Name! - a display in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery, London - will present selected portraits from the Gallery's Collection, including photographs and drawings of Sackville-West's lovers Violet Trefusis and Virginia Woolf.

  • Booking not needed

This display is based on Speak its Name! - a new book of moving and inspirational quotations by and about prominent LGBT people, beautifully illustrated with images from the National Portrait Gallery.

Items from the Sissinghurst collection also feature, including a copy of 'The Well of Loneliness' by Radclyffe Hall, a book with a lesbian protagonist that was deemed 'obscene' by a British judge when it was released in 1928, and pictures of Nicolson and Woolf that once belonged to Sackville-West.
