Victorian Visions

Here's a must. Leighton House Museum in west London is showing Victorian Visions: Pre-Raphaelite and Nineteenth-Century Art from the John Schaeffer Collection until 23 September (CLICK). Artworks from one of the world’s finest private collections of Pre-Raphaelite and Victorian art are being shown in the UK for the first time. Above is Frank Dicksee's Chivalry (1885). Artists include John William Waterhouse, William Holman Hunt, G.F. Watts and Solomon J. Solomon. Admission charges are for the museum: £5 adult, £3 silver surfers. The exhibition is a free extra.

Exquisite. Would the nominees of the Turner prize, those who put them forward and the judges please take note. This is real art. They could have 2 prizes a main one for art and one for the alternative which is er rubbish as a prize nominee. Turner would die laughing.

Hi, Maureen

Glad to hear it. The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was a high spot in British art.
