Modern Painters, Old Masters: The art of the Pre-Raphaelites
As part of the public programme complementing the exhibition, Frederic William Burton: For the Love of Art, we have invited three experts on the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, their circle and the art of the Victorian period to speak at the National Gallery of Ireland this autumn.
As an artist based in London, Burton encountered the work of the Pre-Raphaelites, and their influence is clear in his own work. But who were the Pre-Raphaelites? Why did they cause such a sensation in the art world? And why does their work continue to polarise opinions today? Join us on three consecutive Thursday evenings in the autumn to discover more.
This week's talk will be on the subject of 'Modern Painters, Old Masters: the art of the Pre-Raphaelites' with Professor Elizabeth Prettejohn, University of York.
