Tullie House in Carlisle is home to a nationally important collection of Pre-Raphaelite works of art by the likes of Rosetti and William Morris.
Formed in 1848 as a secret society, a group of seven artists came together and founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Involved in the movement were artists William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, who set out to create challenging and different forms of art after becoming uninspired by the fashionable art of that time.
Their works are displayed at the Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery, where you’ll see their inspiring collections including a rare watercolour painting by Rossetti called Borgia and The Rift within the Lute by Arthur Hughes.
