A friend of Burne-Jones and associate of Gladstone and Disraeli, Bateman was a prominent Pre-Raphaelite until, at their height of his fame, he retreated to this remote fastness. Then the discovery of two autobiographical paintings revealed a poignant story of love and loss, art and politics, morality and hypocrisy… and dark family secrets.
