Art Lecture by Jennifer Morgan, Wednesday 3rd October 2012

"The Andrew Lloyd Webber Collection of Pre-Raphaelites".

This week, our members had the opportunity to attend an interesting art lecture given by Jennifer Morgan, a curator at Tate Britain.

Jennifer introduced us to the ideals of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, a Victorian Avant-garde movement established in 1848, and its main artists which included Sir John Millais, Dante Gabriel Rosetti, Edward Burne-Jones, William Holman Hunt and William Morris. We were then delighted with example of major paintings now in the private collection belonging to Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Inspired by the Art Lecture, several members of our group are planing to visit the  "Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-garde" exhibition at Tate Britain in London.
