This exhibition is devoted to the revolutionary approach to landscape painting introduced to Britain in the 1850s by a group of young artists known as the Pre-Raphaelites. It shows how the landscapes of John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, Ford Madox Brown and others were not only fired by a passion for the natural world, but also deeply rooted in the scientific and religious ideas of the day, and the theories of John Ruskin.

Pre-Raphaelite Vision: Truth to Nature is an exhibition devoted to the purest form of Pre-Raphaelitism. It will open your eyes to the radical nature of artists whom you may think you know well.
