National Gallery Van Eyck and the Pre Raphraelites
2 October 2017 – 2 April 2018
More than four centuries after it was painted, Jan van Eyck’s Arnolfini Portrait inspired the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood to create a new, radical style of painting.
Members of the brotherhood included famous artists such as John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and William Holman Hunt.
In this exhibition you can see Arthurian legends come to life, cursed heroines with flowing hair, and real-life muses dressed in sumptuous clothing.
Look closely for surprising details, exquisite embellishments, and fantastical worlds reflected in mirrors.
Exhibition organised by the National Gallery in collaboration with Tate Britain.
