Tapestries of Florence Welch unveiled to celebrate fifth album Dance Fever

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

The artwork reflects the Brit award winner’s passion for pre-Raphaelite art which “has been a musical and artistic inspiration” and is brought to life in her new album Dance Fever.

The singer, known for her eponymous rock band Florence + The Machine, has been immortalised in the 19th century-style tapestries which hang in Dulwich Picture Gallery gardens, where Welch performed in 2017.

“To be transported back to my favourite era and re-imagined in the style of the leading women who inspired Rossetti and Hunt is a dream I never imagined, on top of being hung in one of my most loved galleries in my hometown of South London.”

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

Jennifer Scott said: “Florence herself is a modern-day representation of Pre-Raphaelite muses like Sir John Everett Millais’s Ophelia.
