Our Newsletter – 9th January 2020
I thought we’d start this newsletter with this beautiful painting by Rosetti that’s presently on display as part of the Pre-Raphaelite Sisters
exhibition at The National Portrait Gallery, London, until 26th January.
She is Prosperpine (Persephone), which seemed appropriate: it was Proserpine who was queen of the underworld but who returned to the surface once a year heralding spring. I have already spotted lots of bulbs springing up in the garden and in the woods as I walk. Lovely to see those first new shoots.
I would love to see this exhibition at the NPG
, but I know I won’t make it before it closes, if you’re in the same position, you might enjoy following the NPG on Instagram
, they post paintings frequently and I always enjoy spotting something new I’ve not seen before in my feed. You can also enjoy this painting (and lots more) via Google Arts and Culture
