The Pre-Raphaelite Legacy British Art and Design

July 11, 2014

May 20 - October 26, 2014

Metropolitan Museum of Art
1000 Fifth Avenue (at 82nd Street)
New York, NY 10028

Le Chant d'Amour by Burne-Jones
This exhibition will highlight the second wave of the Pre-Raphaelite movement as it unfolded from the 1860s through the 1890s, focusing on the key figures of Edward Burne-Jones, William Morris, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Some thirty works from across the Museum's collections-including paintings, drawings, furniture, textiles, prints, and illustrated books, many of them rarely on view and united for the first time-will demonstrate the enduring impact of Pre-Raphaelite ideals as they were adapted by different artists and developed across a range of media. At a time of renewed appreciation for art of the Victorian age, the installation will direct fresh attention toward the Metropolitan's little-known holdings in this important area.
