Beautiful Paintings

'Mariamne Leaving the Judgement Seat of Herod' by J. W. Waterhouse

'Il Dolce Far Niente' by Holman Hunt

I can't wait to see the exhibition that's coming to the Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney, from 20th May to 29th August 2010. It's called 'Victorian Visions: Nineteenth-century art from the John Schaeffer Collection', and contains 45 paintings, watercolours and drawings by Pre-Raphaelites and other nineteenth century artists such as Rossetti, Holman Hunt, Burne-Jones, Leighton, Poynter, Watts and Waterhouse. Among the artworks are 'Mariamne' by J W Waterhouse; Holman Hunt’s 'Il dolce far niente'; Richard Redgrave’s 'The sempstress'; and Leighton’s 'Athlete struggling with a python'.

Great blog Beth. I saw this exhibition last week - TOTALLY AWESOME. Ive just written a post mentioning it on my blog ( which will be posted on the 19/7) and have linked to you as I think you have a great article about the Pre-Raphaelites.
