Victorian Giants: The Birth of Art Photography
This major exhibition is the first to examine the relationship between four ground-breaking Victorian artists: Julia Margaret Cameron (1815–79), Lewis Carroll (1832–98), Lady Clementina Hawarden (1822–65) and Oscar Rejlander (1813–75).
Drawn from public and private collections internationally, the exhibition features some of the most breath-taking images in photographic history. Influenced by historical painting and frequently associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, the four artists formed a bridge between the art of the past and the art of the future, standing as true giants in Victorian photography.
The exhibition is open daily: 10:00am – 6:00pm. Open late: Thursday and Friday until 9:00pm.
Tickets £7.50 on Wednesdays for visitors aged 60 years and over and on Thursdays for students. National Art Pass holders get a 50% discount.
