I visited the Victoria and Albert Museum on the penultimate day of the exhibition, leaving it to the last minute and all I have to say is, it is stunning!
The Cult of Beauty focuses on the British Aesthetic Movement, which includes the pre-Raphelites, Oscar Wilde and William Morris from the Arts and Crafts Movement.
This exhibition is thought-provoking, visually stunning – it short, it’s incredible.
In relation to Chelsea, there are works by Henry Treffry Dunn which illustrate Rosetti’s home on Cheyne Walk. Yes, that’s right, one of the pre-Raphelites lived in Chelsea!
Also, there is a beautiful painting by Whistler of the Old Battersea Bridge, which was painted in 1872.
There is much more to discover and if you make it down for the last day, I hope you enjoy!
