This exhibition looks at the influence that early Italian art and literature had on the Pre-Raphaelites.

Italy " its art, culture, landscape and history " was a central inspiration for one of Britain's most significant and enduringly popular art movements, the Pre-Raphaelites. Featuring artwork by John Ruskin and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Holman Hunt and Edward Burne-Jones, this exhibition brings together over 140 works of art, some of which will be displayed in Britain for the first time.
