Vincent Van Gogh “But I could have told you, Vincent, This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you” ~ Don McLean Searching for alternative viewing from the Olympics last night, I settled into a fascinating investigation of the truth behind the tale of Vincent Van Gogh’s ear on BBC 2.  This also […]

The Pre-Raphaelites – Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Dante Gabriel Rossetti I have been here before, But when or how I cannot tell: I know the grass beyond the door The sweet keen smell, The sighing sound, the lights around the shore. You have been mine before,– How long ago I may not know: But just when at that swallow’s soar Your neck […]

The Pre-Raphaelites – John Ruskin

Pre-Raphaelite Exhibition at Tate Britain 12 September 2012 – 13 January 2013 Previously I first became interested in the Pre-Raphaelites in 1980, when I read “The French Lieutentant’s Woman” by John Fowles.  So when in 2009 there was a television series entitled “Desperate Romantics” based on the book by Franny Moyle, my interest was re-ignited, […]

Interview Series No. 4 – Barry Stevens, the Artist formerly known as Mandala Man

The Pre-Raphaelites – A Soul Group

The recent TV series has revived an interest in the fascinating group of artists known as the Pre-Raphaelites.  The accompanying biography by Franny Moyle, published by John Murray, and entitled “Desperate Romantics” is as gratifyingly profound as the TV series was superficial (though very watchable).  The book is in fact an Astrologer’s dream, giving dates […]
