Course aim:
This course will enable students to identify, understand and discuss the art of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and it's associated artists.
Course description:
The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood of artists created some of the most readily recognisable images of the Victorian period which still resonate with audiences to this day. Recent major exhibitions at the National Gallery (2017), Tate Britain (2016, 2019) and The National Portrait Gallery (2019/2020), as well as a the 2009 dramatization of the artists' lives shown on mainstream television, have generated renewed interests in this fascinating group of artists and their followers. Over six weeks this course will introduce you to the foundations of the art of the Pre-Raphaelites Brotherhood and those associated with it.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. You will be able to identify Pre-Raphaelite art in a museum, country house or other exhibition context
2. You will be able to understand the sources and inspirations for Pre-Raphaelite art
3. You will gain experience in analysing art and discussing it
4. You will develop confidence in your own views about art, and expressing them
