Pre-Raphaelite lovers- want to get your Victorian art fix this spring and summer?  Then you might want to consider a trip to the Leighton House Museum- a Victorian house that was not only the home and studio of Victorian artist Frederick, Lord Leighton, but will also host an exhibit of prodigious Pre-Raphaelite art.

 The exhibit, entitled "Victorian Visions: Pre-Raphaelite and Nineteenth-Century Art from the John Schaeffer Collection" will run from Thursday, April 26 to Sunday, September 23, 2012.

Featured works will include creations by Leighton, John William Waterhouse, William Holman Hunt and Alfred Gilbert, among others.  So if you happen to be in Kensington, England this summer, consider stopping by.  I certainly wish I could, but England's not on the agenda at the moment.

  1. I was lucky to go to the Tate Britain last spring, as they have a fabulous collection of Pre Raphelite art including Waterhouse.
