Curator: Carol Jacobi
Assistant curator: Edit Plesznivy

In the middle of the 19th century, certain young, rebellious artists in Great Britain began to imitate the style of early Renaissance painting, which constituted a radical break with the dominant trends of the period. Using brilliant colours and meticulously worked out details, the Pre-Raphaelites fused a medieval world with elements of modern life in symbol-laden scenes, portraits and landscapes.
The Hungarian National Gallery’s exhibition presents Tate Britain’s most famous and popular Pre-Raphaelite works in Budapest. This overview of the fascinating output of the British artist group features paintings by such masters as John Everett Millais and William Holman Hunt. The influence of the Pre-Raphaelites on Hungarian art is presented by a complementary exhibition The Beauty of Utopia.

The exhibition is on view between 10 April and 30 August.

This exhibition of the Budapest Spring Festival is jointly presented by Müpa Budapest and Hungarian National Gallery.
