The William Morris Gallery is pleased to announce our next special exhibition 'The Legend of King Arthur: A Pre-Raphaelite Love Story' opening at the William Morris Gallery on Friday 14 October and running until Sunday 22 January 2023.
It will explore the legend of King Arthur within the Victorian imagination, presenting the story through the eyes of Pre-Raphaelite artists including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Arthur Hughes, John William Waterhouse and William Morris alongside lesser known female Pre-Raphaelite artists Eleanor Fortescue-Brickdale and Emma Sandys. Curated by Natalie Rigby, Collections Manager at Falmouth Art Gallery, this is the exhibition’s first stop on a nationwide tour of locations associated with King Arthur.
Following its debut at the William Morris Gallery, the exhibition will tour to Tullie House, Carlisle in February 2023 before before finishing its run at Falmouth Art Gallery in Cornwall in June 2023.
