Love and Death: Victorian Paintings from Tate

Love and Death: Victorian Paintings from Tate
8th September 2012 - 13th January 2013
This autumn eleven of the most spectacular paintings in the national collection come to Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery.
This exclusive exhibition will display iconic paintings from Tate alongside related works from Birmingham’s own collection.  The centrepiece will be John William Waterhouse’s ‘The Lady of Shalott’ (1888), one of Tate’s most famous and popular works, which rarely travels outside London.  It will be joined by two other paintings by Waterhouse: a rare opportunity to see this artist inBirmingham.
The exhibition also features classical paintings by the great 19th-century artists Frederic Leighton and Lawrence Alma-Tadema, revealing the Victorian fascination with re-imagining life in Greece and Rome, from lovers’ flirtations to dramatic martyrdom.
Exploring themes of love, beauty, tragedy and death, these powerful and moving paintings will create a spectacular display.
Gallery 12 & 13. Free admission.
