Pre-Raphaelites: A Modern Renaissance

Vanity, 1907 Frank Cadogan Cowper RA (1877 - 1958)

Saturday 13 May 2023, 7.00PM

Speaker(s): Liz Prettejohn and Peter Trippi

Opening in February 2024 at the Musei di San Domenico in Forlì, near Bologna, Italy, is the exhibition Pre-Raphaelites: A Modern Renaissance. It will trace the profound impact of historical Italian art on the Pre-Raphaelite movement between the 1840s and 1920s by placing British works alongside their Italian prototypes. The project will particularly intrigue English-speaking visitors by considering, for the first time, pieces by late 19th-century Italian artists inspired by their British forerunners. On view will be approximately 300 works of fine and decorative art borrowed from museums and private collections worldwide. The exhibition’s lead co-curators are Liz Prettejohn, Peter Trippi, and Francesco Parisi, and their fellow co-curators are Cristina Acidini, Tim Barringer, Stephen Calloway, Véronique Gerard-Powell, and Charlotte Gere.

In their lecture, Liz Prettejohn and Peter Trippi will offer a richly illustrated preview of this unique, one-venue-only project.
