15 June - 3 October 2010. The Pre-Raphealite movement, founded in London in 1848, aimed to reform art by rejecting what was considered to be the mechanistic approach first adopted by the Mannerist artists who succeeded Raphael.
The Pre-Raphaelites sought to recapture the abundant detail and complex compositions adopted by the Quattrocento Italian and Flemish artists. The Belvedere stages an exhibition of their paintings, including major works by the movement's founding members Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt and Sir John Everett Millais.
