Life, Legend, Landscape

On 17 February The Courtauld Gallery in London will open Life, Legend, Landscape: Victorian Drawings and Watercolours. The exhibition will include major artists of the Victorian era, such as J.M.W. Turner, Edwin Landseer, Whistler, Aubrey Beardsley, Rossetti, Millais and Burne-Jones. Many of these works will be on show to the public for the first time. Considering they are all drawn from The Courtauld's own collection, the admission prices of £7.00 for adults, £5.50 for silver surfers (with £1 online booking fee) seem rather steep. The exhibition runs until 15 May. The painting shown is The Parting of Ulysses (c.1862) by John Everett Millais.
