Event Update: Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde Preview Exhibition

This evening I had the pleasure of attending a Pre-Raphaelite themed lecture event at the English Speaking Union followed by a wine and cheese reception. I just wanted to share some lecture information for anyone who may be interested. I will be sharing several links: one link to the Tate Britain site itself for museum details, one link to the related organization Historians of British Art which one of the lectures and prominent Pre-Raphaelite biographer is affiliated with Mr. Peter Trippi. When you click the link for Historians of British Art, look to the right hand side for Events and click on the first event listng New York Conversation. When you do so, a pdf file will ask to be downloaded. I advise you to download, save, and read the attachment because it gives a very specific run down and overview of the upcoming Tate Britain Pre-Raphaelite exhibit and lecture event that took place tonight:

 Event Details for tonight's lecture:
 Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde - Thursday, May 24, 2012 - 6:30 - 8:30 pm

The English-Speaking Union - U.S. National Headquarters. In September 2012, Tate Britain (London) will open the much-anticipated exhibition Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde. Co-curators Tim Barringer and Jason Rosenfeld will give U.S. audiences an early look at this important exhibition, addressing its key themes and its evolution as a project, during an informal, richly illustrated conversation at The English-Speaking Union. Their lively discussion will be moderated by Peter Trippi, president of Historians of British Art and a co-curator of the recent touring exhibition J.W. Waterhouse: The Modern Pre-Raphaelite. The conversation will be followed by a wine reception.

Some paintings that will be featured in the Tate Britain 2013 exhibit by Dante Gabriel Rossetti
 Dante Gabriel Rossetti
The Beloved ('The Bride') 1865-6

 Dante Gabriel Rossetti 
Monna Pomona, 1864

Dante Gabriel Rossetti
The Heart of the Night (Mariana in the Moated Grange), 1862

These paintings and others on the museum site were featured during one of the lectures in a fascinating slide show and retelling. I chose the first one because it will be one of the primary featured Rossetti paintings and the other two because they are not that familiar to me.

For more exhibit details,  Tate Britain

One of the organizations here in the United States affiliated with Peter Trippi and to download that PDF I mentioned above, Historians of British Art

Great update! Who doesn't love the Preraphaelites? Thanks for the links and downloaded information as well. I wish I could see the Tate show but I'll never be able to afford a trip to London!

This exhibition is going to be much better than the Olympics. Thanks.

I agree Veronica and Hermes how I envy you being in the UK. Sadly, I doubt I'll be able to get back there in the future unless I win the lottery or something!
