With Colin Harrison, Senior Curator of European Art at the Ashmolean
There are many connections between the artists of the Pre-Raphalite movement and the city of Oxford. A number of artists connected to the Pre-Raphaelites – Edward Burne-Jones, William Morris, Alfred William Hunt, John Ruskin – studied at the University. In the 1850s a group including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, William Morris and Arthur Hughes decorated the Oxford Union with murals. And, perhaps most significantly, many Pre-Raphaelite artists received from the wealthy superintendent of the University Press, Thomas Combe (1796–1872) and his wife Martha (1806–1893).
At this special Pre-Raphaelites exhibition talk, with Senior Curator Colin Harrison, discover the lives and works of Pre-Raphaelite artists whilst they were in Oxford, and the many other connections with the city.
The event will take place online and in-person at the Ashmolean.
