Radical, dangerous and revolutionary - immerse yourself in the movement that put Victorian Britain on the cutting edge of art.

A century and a half of art hasn't diminished public fascination with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, the iconoclastic band of artists led by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais who sought to free art from the tyranny of High Renaissance idealism. Tate Britain's autumn exhibition brings together over 150 works to present the Brotherhood as an early example of the avant garde and Britain's first truly modern art movement.

Works on show span from painting and sculpture to photography and the applied arts, foregrounding the artists' heightened sensitivity to aesthetics, science and politics. Every key member of the group is represented, from a Burne-Jones wardrobe to a John Everett Millais piece painted en plein air.
