For this day long workshop held at the iconic Tate Britain, London Drawing Group will be delving into the drama, dissention and controversy that was the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Unpacking both their paintings, and their tumultuous relationships with both their models, muses and lovers, LDG will be leading a guided drawing tour around some of England’s most recognizable paintings and exploring the fascinating stories behind them. Expect personal dramas, Shakespearean tragedies, Greek Mythologies and the private narratives that lie behind a whole new genre of painting that shocked nineteenth century to its core.

With appearances from all the major pre raphaelite painters and their associates from Dante Gabriel Rossetti to Holman Hunt, Waterhouse, Frederick Lord Leighton, to John Everett Millais and Ophelia, the world of the Pre Raphaelite Brotherhood is a painter's paradise of narrative, drama and contradiction.

With an afternoon of structured drawing exercises and techniques, as well as the expertise of our tutors to show you some of Britain’s favorite paintings in an entirely new light.
