Truth and Beauty: The Pre-Raphaelites and the Old Masters is the first exhibition to show works of the Victorian Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood alongside masterpieces by the old masters who inspired them, including works by Botticelli, Veronese, Van Eyck, and Memling, plus sumptuous decorative arts. In looking to the past for inspiration, the rebellious Pre-Raphaelites created a radical new aesthetic that was thoroughly modern.
Free for members and one guest; $5 for non-members. Advance registration is required.
