Specialist Tour | Religion, Romance and Passion: Scottish Pre-Raphaelite Noel Paton

Tuesday 5 November, 2024

‘Dunfermline-born painter Noel Paton was a life-long friend of members of the Pre-Raphaelite group and his art shows sympathy with their ideals – their romantic medievalising subject matter and style, use of symbolism, minute detailing of nature and concern to research actual sources for historical costume and pictorial props.

An exciting opportunity to see examples of Paton’s work not normally on display, including illustrations of Shakespeare, Milton, Bunyan and Border Ballads, led by Curator of British Art Jo Meacock.’
