Coming Soon: The Legend of King Arthur: A Pre-Raphaelite Love Story

Coming Soon: The Legend of King Arthur: A Pre-Raphaelite Love Story

Visitors across the country have been flocking to our magnificent touring exhibition and this summer, it is coming to Falmouth for a spectacular finale.

The exhibition tells the story for the first time of the links between the world-famous legend of King Arthur, the renowned Pre-Raphaelite artists and Cornwall’s Arthurian heritage.

It brings together over 60 iconic works of art from public and private collections and is an exclusive opportunity to see the entire Lady of Shalott series of paintings by John William Waterhouse exhibited together for the first time in the UK.

“A swoon of a show” The Times

The incredible line-up of Pre-Raphaelite artists includes Eleanor Fortescue-Brickdale, Edward Burne-Jones, William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Emma Sandys and Elizabeth Siddal.

The exhibition will be accompanied by activities, talks and workshops for all ages.
