Review: Pre-Raphaelites: Beauty and Rebellion at The Walker Art Gallery

"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."
