Florence Welch tapestries unveiled to celebrate fifth album Dance Fever

A trio of hand-woven tapestries depicting singer Florence Welch were unveiled to celebrate the release of her first album in four years.

The artwork reflects the British laureate’s passion for Pre-Raphaelite art, which “was a musical and artistic inspiration” and is brought to life in her new album Dance Fever.

The singer, best known for her eponymous rock band Florence + The Machine, is immortalized in the 19th-century-style tapestries that hang in the gardens of the Dulwich Picture Gallery, where Welch performed in 2017.

Welch said, “Pre-Raphaelite art has been a musical and artistic inspiration of mine for years, most recently brought to life through the lyrics and album creation of Dance Fever.

“Being taken back to my favorite era and reinterpreted in the style of the leading women who inspired Rossetti and Hunt is a dream I never imagined, in addition to being hung in one of my favorite galleries in my hometown of South London .”

The director of the Dulwich Gallery said the Spotify tapestries were the “perfect complement” to her exhibition Reframed: The Woman In The Window.

Jennifer Scott said: “Florence itself is a modern representation of Pre-Raphaelite muses like Ophelia by Sir John Everett Millais.
