National Museums and Galleries on Merseyside, Edward Morris.

The Lady Lever Art Gallery is set in the garden village of Port Sunlight, on the Wirral and one of the National Museums Liverpool. The museum is a significant surviving example of late Victorian and Edwardian taste.

Galleries, Reading Rooms, Shop and Catering Opening Times Vary . Pre-Raphaelitism began in 1848 when a group of seven young artists banded together against what they felt was an artificial and mannered approach to painting taught at London’s Royal Academy of Arts. Pre-Raphaelitism survived the Brotherhood’s dissolution in the early 1850s, resurfacing in 1857 when Oxford undergraduates William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones teamed up with Dante Gabriel Rossetti and painters Arthur Hughes, Valentine Prinsep and others to decorate the Oxford Union debating chamber with Arthurian murals.

The gallery is also the permanent home of Millais’ first fully Pre-Raphaelite oil painting Isabella.

The Coat of Many Colours (Jacob and Joseph’s Coat), 1866, Ford Madox Brown (1821–93). The gallery is also the permanent home of Millais’ first fully Pre-Raphaelite oil painting Isabella. Executed entirely on the brotherhood’s principles, it shows how the artist attempted to achieve a truth to nature whilst developing a highly styled archaism, both of which became central tenets of the ‘Pre-Raphaelite technique’.

Victorian, Pre-Raphaelite & British Impressionist Art. 12 July 2018 2:00 PM BS. Like Waterhouse’s hero Hylas in the painting Hylas and the Nymphs of 1895, who is on the brink of being pulled to his watery death, the mariner in The Siren will slip down into the shadowy depths. 12 July 2018 2:00 PM BST. London. For Waterhouse the siren represented the same subject as Circe, la Belle Dame sans Merci, Medea and Lamia – women whose beauty and magical powers made them personify dangerous femininity.

In 1848, as revolutions swept continental Europe and an uprising for social reform known as Chartism unsettled Britain, seven rebellious young artists in London formed a secret society with the aim of creating a new British art. They called themselve. They called themselves the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and the name, whose precise origin is contested, nevertheless indicates the chief source of their inspiration.

Reviews:
  • Nejind
I purchased this book primarily because I wanted to relive a very pleasant afternoon spent in 1977 when I first visited the Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight, Chesire, Gr. Britain.
This book is beautifully illustrated with many black and white illustrations plus full page color photos -- though I must admit I wish there'd been more color used.
My only critique concerns the actual tone of the book: it is really aimed at the art scholar than the casual observer and thus it would have more appeal to someone who had studied the art in the Victorian & Edwardian eras.
All things said, I don't regret purchasing this book and it brought back many happy memories for me.

Expected more, larger and better quality reproductions of paintings. Disappointing.
