(ANSA) - Turin, March 21 - The Tate Britain's touring
exhibition "Pre-Raphaelites" will make its final stop in Turin
in April before returning home.
Since its London 2012 debut, the blockbuster show has
crossed oceans, making stops at Washington's National Gallery
and Moscow's State Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts.
Turin's newly renovated Palazzo Chiablese will host a
scaled-down version of the original show, showcasing 70 pieces
by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, a group of British painters,
poets and critics from the mid-1800s who promoted a return to
early Renaissance painting styles.
The exhibition line up includes John Everett Millais'
iconic Ophelia, Dante Gabriel Rossetti's beautiful The Beloved
(The Bride) and Lord Ford Madox Brown's enigmatic Take Your Son,
Sir, along with artwork previously never exhibited in Turin and
Turin Mayor Piero Fassino called the exhibition "a great
event that we are able to offer" and added "Turin has made
culture one of the profiles of its identity".
