Back in Tate

I previewed Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde at Tate Britain two years ago and suggested it "could be the best exhibition of the year" (CLICK). Since then it has been on a world tour to Washington, Moscow, Tokyo and Turin, attracting more than a million visitors. From today these timeless masterpieces are back on display in Tate Britain. Shown is Sir John Everett Millais' Ophelia (1851-2). The model for Ophilia was Elizabeth Siddall, who posed for the painting in a bath kept warm by lamps beneath. The bank was the Hogsmill River in Surrey (CLICK).
