Members at the Contributor, Enthusiast, and Partner levels are invited to an Opening Night of the special exhibition Truth and Beauty: The Pre-Raphaelites and the Old Masters.
In 1848—a year of political revolution across Europe—seven young Englishmen formed an artistic alliance aspiring to rebel against the contemporary Victorian art world. The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, including William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, defied idealized figures popularized by Raphael and other High Renaissance artists to reflect the simplicity, spirituality, and beauty they found in late medieval and early Renaissance art.
Enjoy light refreshments, a cash bar, and special programming.
