This will be Lydia Bauman’s fourth art talk of 2012 for The Sebastian Hunter Memorial Trust.
Pre-Raphaelite: Victorian Avant-Garde is currently showing at the Tate Britain (12 September 2012 – 13 January 2013). The exhibition establishes the Pre Raphaelites as an early example of avant- garde painting, as the painters were self-consciously overturning orthodoxy and establishing new parameters for modern painting and design. Combining rebellion, beauty, scientific precision and imaginative grandeur, they were truly Britain’s first modern art movement. Bauman’s talk will investigate the Pre Raphaelites as the first avant-garde painters, and open up the discussion of their place in British Art History.
