July 23 - November 13
The young and audacious artists who called themselves the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood revolutionized the British art establishment of the nineteenth century with their medievalist aesthetic. John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and their fellow Pre-Raphaelites strove to uproot the teachings of the Royal Academy. At the same time Frederic Leighton, Edward Poynter and others championed them.
Featuring more than 120 drawings, "Beauty’s Awakening: Drawings by the Pre-Raphaelites and Their Contemporaries from the Lanigan Collection" encompasses the entire Victorian era.
Organized by the National Gallery of Canada. Presented as a part of the NGC@AGA exhibition series and with support from Simons.
