Specialist Talk: Dante Gabriel Rossetti, His Life & Works

Join Helen, Senior Collections and House Manager for a relaxed talk followed by a walking tour of the collection, and the chance to see early Rossetti sketches that are not normally on display.

  • Booking essential

Rossetti is easily the most charismatic of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood , his wild emotions visible in every brush stroke and audible in every stanza. The tour explores the life of a very complex man.

Starting with a talk in our meeting room followed by a walking tour of the collection around the Manor.
