Ford Madox Brown: Pre-Raphaelite Pioneer
Until 29 Jan 12

Manchester. Two recently discovered works by Ford Madox Brown go on show alongside his famous paintings, Work, 1852-65, and The Last of England, 1855, at Manchester Art Gallery.

The guest curator, Julian Treuherz, describes how he rushed to see the The Seraph’s Watch,
A re-discovered portrait of the London silk manufacturer, James Bamford, will also be on display along with about 140 other works.

Twelve murals by Brown at Manchester Town Hall, normally closed to the public, will be on view to visitors to the exhibition.

The exhibition is due to travel to the Museum voor Schone Kunsten, Ghent, next year. Treuherz says: “[Brown] is going to emerge as an experimental and diverse artist, rather than simply a Pre-Raphaelite.” R.Pr. Categories: 1800-1900 (Impressionism, etc)
