Event description

Description

For this day long workshop held at the iconic Tate Britain, London Drawing Group will be delving into the drama, dissention and controversy that was the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and the women that felled, fuelled and followed them. Unpacking both the iconic paintings and the tumultuous relationships that inspired them through their models, muses and lovers, (whose stories are too often sidelined in the re-telling of art's great victorian shake-up), LDG will be leading a guided drawing tour around some of England’s most recognizable paintings and exploring the fascinating stories behind them. Expect personal dramas, Shakespearean tragedies, Greek Mythologies and the private narratives that lie behind the genre of painting that shocked the nineteenth century to its core.

With appearances from all the major pre raphaelite painters and their associates from Dante Gabriel Rossetti to Holman Hunt, Waterhouse, Frederick Lord Leighton, to John Everett Millais and Ophelia, the world of the Pre Raphaelite Brotherhood is a painter's paradise of narrative, drama and contradiction, explore the feminine histories behind these paintings and learn to interact with them through afternoon of structured drawing exercises and techniques, under the guidance of our LDG tutor; Luisa-Maria MacCormack.
