Hypatia by Charles William Mitchell (1885)

Charles William Mitchell (1854–1903) was an English Pre-Raphaelite painter from Newcastle. A contemporary of John William Waterhouse, his work is similar in many ways. His one famous piece was Hypatia, shown in 1885 and likely inspired by the Charles Kingsley serialized novel Hypatia, or New Foes with an Old Face.[1] This painting is currently in the Laing Art Gallery.
