The American Pre-Raphaelites: Radical Realists Promo

In celebration of the 200th anniversary of the birth of renowned art critic, John Ruskin, this exhibition features more than 80 paintings, watercolors, drawings, and photographs created by artists profoundly influenced by the influential Victorian era critic. Member artists not only recorded the natural world with strict fidelity, as Ruskin advocated, but also created a number of works that included rich political subtexts referencing the ongoing war.
