Love and Hope in Pre-Raphaelite Storytelling. Online Talk

Thursday 15th February 2024, 6:30pm-7:30pm (GMT) Online Talk

In drawing and painting scenes from Greek mythology, the Bible, and poetry by Alfred Lord Tennyson, Pre-Raphaelite artists forged a new way of seeing simultaneously into the past and the future, offering new perspectives on the beauty and anguish of love, and the persistence of hope. 

This online talk, led by art historian Ayla Lepine, will explore stories of love and hope in late Pre-Raphaelite works of art by Edward Burne-Jones, William Waterhouse, and Frederick Cayley Robinson, amongst others. Tales familiar to their audiences, from the Christmas story of the Nativity to the antics of Cupid and the twists and turns of good or bad luck, were depicted afresh by these revolutionary artists.
