Nice to see a bit of culture on the forum. We can talk about that. It's not all about the 'have you ever shit yourself?' thread. :*:

I for one will be going to this.

It's a big exhibition, largest on the genre for almost 30 years. Two of Jimmy Page's Morris & Co tapestries on show, Morris's bed from Kelmscott, The Prioress Wardrobe from the Ashmolean and paintings from various UK collections and a few from around the world.

I wish I could go. I like the Pre-Raphaelites' style, although I don't know much about them (I'm more familiar with the writers of their circle), and I've seen my favourite picture is in the exhibition (it's the third big one at the very beginning of the video, that of the lady lying in the water... Is it Hamlet's Ophelia, or have I made that up?). I don't even know who painted it :oops:. So since I won't be able to make it to the Tate, I'll just go and see what Google can tell me about the painting.

You are correct, it is Ophelia from Hamlet, beautifully painted by John Everett Millais which belongs to the Tate. The model is Elizabeth Siddall who married Rossetti but died young. She's the one who he had her grave opened to regain the only copy of his poems so he could publish them. Some of her watercolours are in the exhibition which showed great promise.

Another Millais, Ferdinand and Arial, beautifully painted with those amazing ghostly creatures.

i always thought millais' later stuff was best. "winter fuel" in manchester is terrific (get close to it) and the late landscapes at lady lever on the wirral are beautifully subtle

Really lovely exhibition! I've always liked Millais and Burne-Jones... but I also thought it was really nice to see some Ford Madox Brown (I'd not seen much of his work first-hand!) And I also found myself appreciating Holman Hunt in a completely new way...

Especially after seeing his 'Lady of Shalott';

That painting is amazing, so much detail in there.
