Pre-Raphaelites Victorian Avant-Garde at Tate Gallery. London Exhibition
The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (also known as the Pre-Raphaelites) was a group of English painters, poets, and critics, founded in 1848 by William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. The three founders were soon joined by William Michael Rossetti, James Collinson, Frederic George Stephens and Thomas Woolner to form a seven-member “brotherhood” (From Wikipedia)
The Tate gallery opened this Friday the exhibition Pre-Raphaelites Victorian Avant-Garde, Britain’s first modern art movement. According to TATE Gallery “The exhibition establishes the PRB as an early example of the avant-garde: painters who self-consciously overturned orthodoxy and established a new benchmark for modern painting and design. It will include many famous Pre-Raphaelite works, and will also re-introduce some rarely seen masterpieces including Ford Madox Brown’s polemical Work 1852–65 and the 1858 wardrobe designed by Philip Webb and painted by Edward Burne-Jones on the theme of The Prioress’s Tale.”
This is a unique opportunity to enjoy not only the great pre-Raphaelites paintings, we will be able to discover sculptures, photographies and the applied arts.
