Lake Forest Park Library — Victorian Radicals: From the Pre-Raphaelites to the Art and Crafts Movement

May 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

 

Unfinished painting of a dark haired caucasian woman with complete head and hands but sketched body

Presented by Tamara Moats, Seattle Art Historian, History Teacher at the Bush School and former Curator of Education at the UW Henry Art Gallery.

The summer exhibition at the Seattle Art Museum presents the artwork of the major artists and designers of the rebellious Pre-Raphaelites of the 19th century. They wanted to connect art to everyday life and were committed to the handmade object.

The exhibition will present 145 paintings, drawings, books, sculptures, textiles and decorative arts.

This lecture will preview the exhibition and explore these artists’ attention to detail, use of vibrant colors and engagement with both literary themes and contemporary life.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Lake Forest Park Library.
