January 11 @ 9:30 am$200. – $220.
IN SEARCH OF CAMELOT: THE PRE-RAPHAELITES AND THEIR WORLD
This course has been designed to accompany the Victorian Radicals exhibition at the Museum. We will explore the colorful beauty and the chivalrous ideals of the Pre-Raphaelite paintings, as well as the artists’ eccentric personalities and lives. We will view paintings of courageous knights and noble ladies, reflecting these nineteenth-century artists’ fascination with the history and legends of the Middle Ages. We will also look at Scottish Highland scenes, pastoral English landscapes, and Dickensian slice-of-life images, contrasted with exotic glimpses of Cairo and Jerusalem that reflect the travels and real-life adventures of Pre-Raphaelite artists. The Arts and Crafts movement, with its efforts to restore the individuality and creativity of traditional craftsmanship, will also be included. Beautiful work in silver, stained glass, and other media, as well as important and historic paintings, will be considered in person as we explore the Museum’s exciting new exhibition together.
