Ford Madox Brown

My first teaching practice was to deliver the contextual studies(art history) module, as someone who had limited artist knowledge and all self taught, I had a crash course in the Art & Design Timeline. One I found particularly fascinating at that juncture was the pre-raphaelites and the work of Madox Brown and Rossetti, wistful romance with dark undertones of a society hiding reality. Manchester Art Gallery are housing the first complete exhibition of Madox Brown's work since 1964 and it is breathtaking, but only 10 days left to catch it.
