Beyond the Brotherhood: The Pre-Raphaelite Legacy


Tracing the Pre-Raphaelite thread from its inception into the 21st Century, this exhibition follows the movement’s influence on artistic developments including Realism, Aestheticism, Symbolism and Art Nouveau. Displaying stunning imagery from across the decades, it will demonstrate that Pre-Raphaelitism lives on in contemporary fantasy, book illustration and film as well as inspiring artists today.

Beyond the Brotherhood: The Pre-Raphaelite Legacy, is supported by the Weston Loan Programme with the Art Fund, and will run at Southampton City Art Gallery from 18 October 2019 until 1 February 2020 then at the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum, Bournemouth, from 21 February until 21 June 2020.
