Pre-Raphaelite Vision: Truth to Nature

Pre-Raphaelite Vision: Truth to Nature
Pre-Raphaelite Vision is the first exhibition to focus solely on the deep fascination the Pre-Raphaelites had for the natural world and enables visitors to explore a whole new dimension of their work. The exhibition brings together around 150 works including celebrated paintings such as William Holman Hunt�s Our English Coasts (Strayed Sheep) 1852, John William Inchbold�s Anstey�s Cove, Devon 1853-4 and of course John Everett Millais� Ophelia 1851-2, all of which explore the scientific, religious and social culture of the age.
[I don’t know whether any Lear paintings are included, but, while no pre-raphaelite himself, he was no doubt influenced by Holman Hunt in his landscape painting.]
