Parabola of Pre-Raphaelitism

This exhibition highlights the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, founded by William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel in 1848. This art movement was championed by the art critic and artist, John Ruskin. This brotherhood desired art similar to that before the time of Raphael, using intense colors, focusing on nature and Biblical and historical themes. The exhibition consists of artwork by all of these artists and continues through to the work of other Brotherhood associates, Edward Burne-Jones in particular and the decorative arts of William Morris.
