Victorian Radicals: From the Pre-Raphaelites to the Arts and Crafts Movement

Published March 12, 2020

In the second half of the nineteenth century, three generations of young rebellious artists and designers revolutionized the visual arts in Britain and challenged the new industrial world around them. The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, William Morris and his associates, and the champions of the Arts and Crafts movement offered a radical artistic and social vision that found inspiration in the preindustrial past and decisively influenced visual culture in Britain and beyond. Victorian Radicals will bring together approximately 145 paintings, works on paper, and works of decorative art—many never shown outside the UK—to illuminate this most dynamic period of British art in an exhibition of unparalleled historical and visual richness.

The exhibition takes place at the Yale Center for British Art, 1080 Chapel St, New Haven, CT 06510 and runs from 2/13 - 5/10/20.
