Unveiling The Rossettis: A Groundbreaking Art Exhibition

Bask in the profound beauty and revolutionary spirit of Pre-Raphaelite artistry as we delve into “The Rossettis: A Special Exhibition.”

This distinguished showcase not only immerses you in the mesmerising world of the Rossetti family but also offers a unique perspective on the transformative power of art.

The Unrivalled Rossettis

From 6th April until 24th September 2023, Tate Britain will be the proud host of this exceptional exhibition. Following this, the Delaware Art Museum will pick up the mantle, opening its doors to this curated collection from 21st October 2023 to 28th January 2024.

Revolutionary and romantic, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, his siblings, and his wife, Elizabeth Siddal, were at the forefront of a pioneering counterculture. Their artwork was not only beautiful but also transformative, drawing inspiration from the past to shape the future of art. This exhibition, organised in partnership with Tate Britain, is the first of its kind, bringing the remarkable works of Rossetti to the United States for the first time.

Captivating Collection

The showcase features over 100 pieces, amassed from international public and private collections. Visitors can feast their eyes on a variety of Rossetti’s works, ranging from his early and late paintings to his watercolours, photographs, and designs.
