This stunning exhibition is a rare opportunity to see iconic works including painting, sculpture, photography and furniture, in a spectacular show that concludes that the Pre-Raphaelite artists, from Rossetti to William Morris, were the 19th century forefathers of avant-garde.
This stunning exhibition is a rare opportunity to see some of the most talked about paintings by Rossetti, Holman Hunt and Millais.
Known for being Britain’s first radical art movement, the Pre-Raphaelites were a group of rebellious art students who painted pictures of modern life using bright colours and controversial subject matter and shook the art world in the nineteenth century - much like Damien Hirst has done today.
Combining rebellion, beauty, scientific precision and imaginative grandeur, the Pre-Raphaelites constitute Britain’s first modern art movement. This exhibition brings together over 150 works in different media, including painting, sculpture, photography and the applied arts, revealing the Pre-Raphaelites to be advanced in their approach to every genre.
Come and see for yourself at Tate Britain until 13 January 2013.
