Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde

Having debuted at London's Tate Britain in 2012, this epochal exhibition now comes to Tokyo and to the Mori Arts Center Gallery. The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, formed in 1848 by John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and William Holman Hunt, challenged convention in Victorian Britain and endeavoured to overthrow the art orthodoxy of the time through a return to the classical roots of Italian 15th-century painting, renowned for its rich and complex form of expression. This show traces the evolution of the movement through 72 representative pieces.
