"Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde" exhibition now open

10 June 2013

The Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation has announced the opening of The “Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde” exhibition, which is taking place at the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow, starting from 11 June, through to 22 September 2013.

The exhibition was organised by the State Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts (Moscow), Tate (London), and the Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation in collaboration with the British Council.

The exhibition will include paintings and works of applied art — in total over 80 exhibits from museums and private collections in the US and the UK, including masterpieces from the Tate collection: Ophelia, and Mariana by John Everett Millais, Beloved and Proserpina by Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

The “Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde” exhibition is timed with a unique literary project — publication of a book titled, The Poetic World of the Pre-Raphaelites, as well as a rich educational programme for children and adults. More information about the exhibition and educational programme is available on the organisers’ websites, as well as on the exhibition website itself: PRB.artguide.ru.

The exhibition continues a major project promoting and raising awareness of British art among the Russian public, organised jointly by the London’s Tate, Moscow’s Pushkin Museum, the British Council and the Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation. In 2008, thanks to the support of the Foundation, the State Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts previously held an exhibition titled, “William Turner. Paintings and Drawings” which attracted thousands of visitors and opened new opportunities for cultural enrichment.
