Pre-Raphaelites Exhibition, National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.
Pre-Raphaelites Exhibition, National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

The first major survey of the art of the Pre-Raphaelites to be shown in the United States features some 130 paintings, sculptures, works on paper, and decorative art objects. The young members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, formed in 1848, shook the art world of mid-19th-century Britain by rejecting traditional approaches to painting. Combining scientific precision, an innovative approach to subject matter, and brilliant, clear colors, Pre-Raphaelitism was Britain's first avant-garde art movement.

Organization: Organized by Tate Britain in collaboration with the National Gallery of Art, Washington.

Sponsor: The exhibition is made possible through the generous support of Sally Engelhard Pingree and The Charles Engelhard Foundation.

The exhibition is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.

Schedule: Tate Britain, London, September 12, 2012–January 13, 2013; National Gallery of Art, Washington, February 17–May 19, 2013; The State Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow, June–September 2013.
