Pre-Raphaelite Knights Reinventing the Medieval World


© The Fitzwilliam Museum, CambridgeThis Spring come and see how the Victorian's imagined a world of fairy tales, fantasy, myths and legends.

This exhibition will include paintings from prestigious UK collections including the Tate, The Fitzwilliam Museum, Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, Guildhall Art Gallery  and Manchester Art Gallery featuring maidens in distress, knights in armour, saints and chivalry with romance and whimsy in galore.  

The Pre-Raphaelite movement was a secret brotherhood of painters, writers and poets who rebelled against the promotion of painters like Raphael, whose work they thought looked unreal.

Along with paintings by Rossetti, Millais, and Holman Hunt among others, there will also be suits of armour, illustrated editions of books by William Morris and Alfred Tennyson and interactive displays.
