The Fan Museum is pleased to make available a richly illustrated article on a fan-related topic authored by Helene Alexander MBE, Founder/Director of the Museum and a leading authority on fans.

‘Fans of Cleopatra’ explores in rich detail a number of fans dating from the eighteenth to early-twentieth century, each held within the Museum’s renowned collections and decorated with subjects pertaining to the legend of Queen Cleopatra VII, the last of the Ptolemaic dynasty, which ruled over Egypt during the Hellenistic period.
