THE PRE-RAPHAELITES

This talk takes place in the Headley Lecture Theatre

And online on Zoom

Booking is required


With Alice Foster, art historian

Can there be anything else to say about the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood?  Answer:  yes, always.

They were fearless during a time of predictable artistic preference in Britain;  they were pioneers of new painting techniques not taught in traditional art schools and they were inspired by the colours and clear narrative of medieval art.
