    Default Britain’s best places to see: Pre-Raphaelite collections and art galleries

    This is a long article but worth reading if you are interested in art. It's a list of 25 places to see Pre-Raphaelite art in Britain.

    Love them or loathe them the Pre-Raphaelites occupy a peculiar and influential space in the history of British art. Even today, over 150 years after it was painted, one of the most popular paintings in Tate Britain’s postcard shop remains Millais’ classic portrayal of Shakespeare’s tragic heroine, Ophelia. In many ways, the painting serves as a kind of blueprint of the Pre-Raphaelite style; the beautifully tragic girl, the truth to nature, the literary theme and layer upon layer of symbolism.

    But there’s more to the Pre-Rapahaelites than tragic maidens and medieval escapism and their collections are not confined to London. Their influence can be seen in galleries, museums and heritage sites across the UK, with particular strongholds in the great industrial cities of the Victorian era.

    I'll post some of the paintings I like.
