Art History Mornings at The Beecroft Gallery (30th June 2018): The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood

Art History Mornings at The Beecroft Gallery

Saturday 30th June, 10.30am-12.30pm

with Dr ML Banting

The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood

In 1848 a group of artists including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais turned British art upside down when they formed the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. With paintings that ranged from Arthurian romance to contemporary morality, both their art practices and subject matter were revolutionary.

Today at the Beecroft Gallery we’ll look at the art of the Brotherhood to discover why their vision was so radical in the context of the mid-19th century.
