Enjoy some Love & Desire of your own with Pacific Suite’s exclusive accommodation package from just $199 per night, including 2 tickets to the exhibition and an overnight stay in one of our spacious suites.
A group of rebellious, mid-nineteenth century British artists emulated the spirit of early Renaissance painting in protest against the art establishment of the era and society at large. These young artists flouted convention with their use of brilliant colour, meticulous detail and exquisite layering. The Pre-Raphaelites drew inspiration from the great love stories of history and literature, creating a new artistic genre.
Their works are sometimes poetic and sexy, and sometimes raw, literary scenes, portraits and landscapes rich in symbolism. Love & Desire, on from 14 December 2018 to 28 April 2019, features masterpieces such as John Everett Millais’ Ophelia 1851–52 and William Holman Hunt’s The Awakening conscience 1853, this exhibition is a stunning survey of the Pre-Raphaelite movement.
