Description

The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, formed in 1848 by seven young Englishmen, aspired to rebel against the contemporary Victorian art world. This band, including William Hunt, John Everett Millais, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, hoped to reform art by rejecting mechanistic copying of Raphael and other High Renaissance artists. It’s this rebellion that our docent, Ms. Holm, will explore with us as we tour the new de Young exhibit, Truth and Beauty: The Pre-Raphaelites and the Old Masters. The rebel Brotherhood’s own works will be compared to those of the artists who inspired them, including Italian old masters Fra Angelico and Pietro Perugino and their northern contemporaries Jan van Eyck and Hans Memling. Here’s an afternoon of fine art and art history not to be missed.
