Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-GardeThe Pre-Raphaelites were the rebels of the mid-nineteenth century, a collection of avant-garde artists who overturned orthodoxy and set the tone for modern art. The secret society was founded in 1848 and was largely led by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais. Opposed to the triviality represented by the Royal Academy's tastes, they were inspired predominantly by John Ruskin's theories of nature, realism and religion, love and death. The Tate has now brought together a collection of over 150 pieces of art showcasing the very best of the movement. Paintings, sculpture, photography and applied arts will sit alongside rare masterpieces including Ford Madox Brown's controversial Work 1852-1865. Also Philip Webb and Burne-Jones's The Prioress's Tale wardrobe of 1858. Don't miss this unique chance to view work from Britain's original modern art movement.

 

About Tate Britain

Overlooking the River Thames, Tate Britain was originally founded through the philanthropy of the sugar magnate Sir Henry Tate. The Tate legacy now encompasses three other galleries around the UK, including Tate Modern also in London. Dedicated to showcasing Britain's artistic talent, Tate Britain is home to the greatest collection of British art from 1500 to the present day. More about Tate Britain
