Opens 14 December

This summer enter a stunning world of Love and Desire as the Tate lends some of the most iconic paintings of the Pre-Raphaelite period including John Everett Millais’ Ophelia (pictured) and John William Waterhouse’s The Lady of Shalott.

Drawing inspiration from the great love stories of history and literature, the Pre-Raphaelites used brilliant colour, meticulous detail and exquisite layering to create a new artistic genre, sometimes poetic and sexy and sometimes raw.

Love and Desire: Pre-Raphaelite Masterpieces from the Tate stunning survey features over 40 of the Tate’s most famous and best-loved works, alongside 40 loans from British and Australian collections, some of which have never been seen in Australia before.

Exclusive to the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra

Open Daily, 10am-5pm
