"Pre-Raphaelite Sisters"- This is the first major exhibition in history dedicated to numerous women surrounding the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. In 1849, British innovative artists presented their first paintings. Now, 160 years later, the National Portrait Gallery in London explores the enormous contribution that 12 women have made to their work. Among them are Evelyn de Morgan, Effie Millet, Elizabeth Siddahl and Joanna Wells, whose works were virtually excluded from the history of the movement.
The exhibition will feature new discoveries and previously not exhibited works from public and private collections around the world, including - with the image of your favorite models of Pre-Raphaelites. With the help of paintings, photographs, manuscripts and personal items, curators explore the significant role that women played as artists, models, muses and assistants who supported the artistic achievements of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.
