The exhibition was organized by the Tate Britain (who published the original catalogue), in collaboration with the Alte Nationalgalerid (Berlin) and the Fundacion "la Caixa" (Madrid). This exhibition is dedicated to the revolutionary approach to landscape that took place in Britain in the mid-nineteenth century by a group of young artists who called themselves Pre-Raphaelites. The landscape paintings of John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt and Ford Madox, among others, are flooded with a great passion for the natural world, however, were also deeply rooted in religious and scientific ideas of the time, as well as the theories of John Ruskin. The exhibition includes paintings, drawings, watercolors and photographs, sorted, broadly in chronological order, from just before the founding of the Brotherhood of the Pre-Raphaelites in 1848 until 1860, year in which they began to change his painting style. Following this structure, each room is intended to highlight a different aspect in the approach to the landscape of the Pre-Raphaelites.
