The Pre-Raphaelite works to see at Tate Britain
As one might expect from a museum dedicated to British art, Tate Britain has some of the greatest works from the Pre-Raphaelite movement in its collection. It holds one of the most recognisable works of art in the world, Sir John Everett Millais’s Ophelia (1851-1852), which depicts the doomed Shakespearian heroine in a lake filled with flowers. The stunning portrait known as Monna Vanna (Vain Woman, 1866) by Dante Gabriel Rossetti depicts a gloriously poised woman in luxurious clothing, complete with ostentatious hair clips and a feather fan. The artist considered it one of his best works.
