Truth and Beauty: The Pre-Raphaelites and the Old Masters

Published July 13, 2018

Truth and Beauty: The Pre-Raphaelites and the Old Masters is the first major exhibition to juxtapose examples by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood with works that inspired its members, including Italian old masters Fra Angelico and Pietro Perugino and their Northern contemporaries Jan van Eyck and Hans Memling. It reveals how the Brotherhood’s aesthetic evolved over time to embrace artistic influences from the High and late Renaissance, such as Botticelli, Raphael, Titian, and Veronese. It also offers a rich multimedia opportunity to examine the artists’ attraction to stained glass, domestic decorations, and sixteenth-century textiles.
   
The exhibition runs from June 30 - September 30, 2018 at the Legion of Honor, Lincoln Park, 100 34th Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94121.
