Victorian Treasures Walker Art Gallery, 27th January - 7th May 2017 Words, Carol Emmas Hot on the heels of the Waker Art Gallery’s recent exhibition., Pre-Raphaelites: Beauty and Rebellion,...
More than 43,000 visitors have seen the Walker Art Gallery’s blockbuster exhibition, Pre-Raphaelites: Beauty and Rebellion, which closes on 5 June 2016. The popular exhibition showcases more than 120 paintings by leading Pre-Raphaelite artists.
"In many ways this was the movement that began holding both artists and critics to account over arguments of the tastes and functions surrounding visual art. This exhibition is both a review of that movement, and a new approach to connecting their history to relative developments in the North West."
Friday 12 February - Sunday 5 June 2016. Through renowned works by Pre-Raphaelite masters including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown, William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais, the exhibition will explore the significance of the Liverpool Academy and the city’s Autumn Exhibitions, which enabled the movement to flourish.
The Salutation of Beatrice (1881/2) by Dante Gabrielle Rossetti represents a familiar theme to the artist. His muse Jane Morris is cast as Beatrice Portinari, the subject of medieval poet Dante Alighieri’s unrequited love.
