The Pre-Raphaelites included:
- James Collinson (painter)
- William Holman Hunt (painter)
- John Everett Millais (painter)
- Dante Gabriel Rossetti (painter, poet)
- William Michael Rossetti (critic)
- Frederic George Stephens (critic)
- Thomas Woolner (sculptor, poet)
And most of these were represented at the exhibit as was Ford Mattox Brown.
We all agreed that John Everett Malais was our favorite.
I would have loved to have taken photos, but when I asked if it was allowed the room's docent said no because the paintings were on loan from the Tate (London) and they'd asked that there be no photos. Too bad others didn't check for many were taking pictures. I borrowed mine from the Net.
|The purple in this painting just glowed!|
We also ducked into an exhibit of Albrecht Durer drawings and engravings, but it was so crowded we didn't linger.
No matter how many times we visit the Smithsonian Museums there's always something new to see.
On the Mall outside the museums it was the annual kite flying festival, hard to see the kites, but there were some fantastic one.
