> DESCRIPTION

Young and impassioned, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood sought to revitalize mid-nineteenth-century British painting with the sincerity and vivid intensity they admired in medieval and early Renaissance art. Although the Brotherhood was short-lived, its influence was profound. This exhibition will highlight the second wave of the Pre-Raphaelite movement as it unfolded from the 1860s through the 1890s, focusing on the key figures Edward Burne-Jones, William Morris, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Some thirty works from across the Museum's collections—including paintings, drawings, furniture, textiles, prints, and illustrated books, many of them rarely on view and united for the first time—will demonstrate the enduring impact of Pre-Raphaelite ideals as they were adapted by different artists and developed across a range of media. At a time of renewed appreciation for art of the Victorian age, the installation will direct fresh attention toward the Metropolitan's little-known holdings in this important area.
