Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-82) was one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (1848), a group of English painters, poets and critics who wanted to reform the British art scene. The Pre-Raphaelites dismissed popular mannerist stylized imagery and instead championed detail, realism and the influence and depiction of nature.

This exhibition showcases 150 Pre-Raphaelite paintings, tapestry pieces, furniture and more, selected from private and museum collections in the U.K. and U.S. Highlights include “Venus Verticordia” (1863-68) by Rossetti, and “The Tree of Forgiveness” (1882) by Edward Burne-Jones.
