Pre –Raphaelites In Print brings together a fine collection of etched and engraved works by distinguished artists of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and their followers. Including work by Edward Burne-Jones, William Holman Hunt and Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
This exhibition provides a rare opportunity to view and purchase scarce printed works by some of the most pre-eminent English artists of the nineteenth Century.
Highlights of the exhibition include a very scarce photogravure by Holman Hunt of the May Day choir singing from the top of Magdalen College Tower, a highly detailed etching by Jules Simon Payrau after Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones’ The Garden of Hesperides alongside a Berlin Photographic Company impression of Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s Dante’s Dream at the Time of the Death of Beatrice.
