Find out more: http://bit.ly/2wBPZiu Acquired by the National Gallery in 1842, the Arnolfini Portrait informed the Pre-Raphaelites’ belief in empirical observation, their ideas about draughtsmanship, colour and technique, and the ways in which objects in a picture could carry symbolic meaning. The exhibition will bring together for the first time the 'Arnolfini Portrait' with paintings from the Tate collection and loans from other museums, to explore the ways in which Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828–1882), Sir John Everett Millais (1829–1896) and William Holman Hunt (1827–1910), among others, were influenced by the painting in their work. This exhibition is organised by the National Gallery in collaboration with Tate Britain.

It seems as if the shadows tinged the mirror leaving us half sick for the beauty. Thanks for the video.

I love this poem! Loreena McKennitt set this poem to music and it’s one of my favorite songs ever! This was a very interesting video, thank you!
