Dante In Dunoon: Dante Gabriel Rossetti
The Patrons of Dunoon Burgh Hall Trust are delighted to present this exhibition of the work of the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood founder and artist, Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Rossetti’s sensuous artworks, created during an era of innovation and industrialisation in Victorian England, reinterpret medieval and religious subject matter, with a keen observational and symbolic style. As a founding member of the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood, Rossetti and his circle sought to disrupt the staid academic art establishment, returning to the sense of moral and religious purpose and clarity which they saw in early Renaissance painting. This exhibition is a unique opportunity to observe Rossetti’s artistic process and literary preoccupations through preparatory drawings, watercolour and oil painting created throughout the artist’s illustrious career, kindly loaned by Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery. We’d like to say a special thanks to Western Ferries and ACHA, together with our patrons for generously supporting this exhibition.
