The Rossettis

Revolution, partnership, love. The Rossettis led a progressive counterculture, drawing on the past to reinvent art for their fast-changing modern world. The work of Pre-Raphaelite founder Dante Gabriel Rossetti, alongside that of his wife, artist Elizabeth Siddal, and his siblings, writers Christina and William Michael Rossetti, are the subject of this major international exhibition organized in partnership with Tate Britain.

The Rossettis presents celebrated DelArt paintings by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, such as Found and Lady Lilith, contextualized among masterpieces from the Tate’s collection and loans from public and private collections worldwide. The show will include Rossetti’s outstanding early and late paintings, watercolors, photographs, and design, and major drawings by Siddal. This exhibition marks the first time this material will be assembled and displayed in the United States. It will be on view at Tate Britain from April 6 to September 24, 2023, before traveling to DelArt.

The Rossettis is accompanied by a complimentary audio guide available via QR code on visitors’ smart phones. We recommend bringing your own headphones to enjoy the audio guide in our gallery.
