5:30 – 7:30 pm
Sanders of Oxford are pleased to present an exhibition of original prints by the leading Pre-Raphaelite artists.
Following the success of our first Pre –Raphaelite print exhibition in 2010 and with the recent exhibitions at the Ashmolean Museum and Tate Britain bringing the work of the Pre-Raphaelites to fore of public attention, there has been a resurgence of interest in what is regarded as the first British modern art movement.
Pre –Raphaelites in Print brings together a fine collection of etched and engraved works by distinguished artists of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and their followers. Including work by Edward Burne-Jones, William Holman Hunt and Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
This exhibition provides a rare opportunity to view and purchase scarce printed works by some of the most pre-eminent English artists of the nineteenth Century.
Highlights of the exhibition include a very scarce photogravure by Holman Hunt of the May Day choir singing from the top of Magdalen College Tower, a highly detailed etching by Jules Simon Payrau after Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones’ The Garden of Hesperides alongside a Berlin Photographic Company impression of Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s Dante’s Dream at the Time of the Death of Beatrice.
An accompanying catalogue will be available to download from our website from the 17th of January:
