Pre-Raphaelites: Modern Renaissance

Published on March 15, 2024

Pre-Raphaelites: Modern Renaissance chronicles three generations of Pre-Raphaelites, a movement formed in 1848 by seven rebellious young men determined to reinvigorate art in Victorian England. Resolved to capture the passion and authenticity conveyed by medieval and Renaissance Italian artists who worked before the death of Raphael (1520), the Pre-Raphaelites re-envisioned styles and themes from the past in decidedly modern ways. 

Over 350 artworks by Italian masters ranging such as Cimabue, Daddi, Botticelli, Angelico, Gozzoli, Lippi, Della Robbia, Verrocchio, Michelangelo, Veronese and Reni – juxtaposed with major works by British artists including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, John Ruskin, Edward Burne-Jones, William Morris, Elizabeth Siddal, Frederic Leighton, G F Watts, Simeon Solomon, Evelyn De Morgan and J W Waterhouse are on display.

The exhibition runs from 2/24-6/30/24 at San Domenico Museum, 12 P.le Guido da Montefeltro, Forlì, 47121 Italy.
