We are very proud to announce that this year The Sisters’ Room is collaborating with the Brontë Parsonage Museum. On the last Friday of each month we will publish special contents curated by the experts of the museum. Let’s have a look at what’s inside the closets, drawers and cupboards at the Parsonage. You will find in this new section some of the objects that belonged to the Brontë family and which are kept in the Brontë Parsonage Museum archives. Enjoy this new article about Branwell’s “A Parody”.
Believed to be his last artwork, Branwell draws himself laid in bed with the figure of Death attempting to provoke him into a fight, which Branwell refuses, showing his preoccupation with his own death. Branwell was always interested in boxing and references are made to ‘Jack Painter of Norfolk’ who was a boxer of the time.
