All Pre-Raphaelite Society members are invited to a gallery visit hosted by the London and Southern group to see ‘Painting with Light’ Art and Photography from the Pre-Raphaelites to the modern age. The visit will take place on Saturday 10th September 2016, at 2p.m at Tate Britain, Millbank, London, SW1P 4RG.
Tate Britain presents the first major exhibition to celebrate the spirited conversation between early photography and British art. It brings together photographs and paintings including Pre-Raphaelite, Aesthetic and British impressionist works. Spanning 75 years across the Victorian and Edwardian ages, the exhibition opens with the experimental beginnings of photography in dialogue with painters such as J.M.W. Turner and concludes with its flowering as an independent international art form.
Stunning works by John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, JAM Whistler, John Singer Sargent, John William Waterhouse and others will for the first time be shown alongside ravishing photographs by pivotal early photographers such as Julia Margaret Cameron, which they inspired and which inspired them.
We will meet at the Manton entrance to Tate Britain on Atterbury Street at 1:45pm to distribute tickets for our 2pm slot.
For further details relating to the event mentioned above please email Madeleine Pearce, the London and Southern Group coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org. Sign up leaflets will be available in the next PRS mailing.
