We are pleased to announce two loans to Tate Britain’s new exhibition Painting with Light: Art and Photography from the Pre-Raphaelites to the modern age.
The show explores the painters that inspired early photographers and the photographs that changed painting. Spanning 75 years, Painting with Light showcases the experimental beginnings of photography right through to its flowering as an independent international art form.
The two photographs on loan from us are John Dudley Johnston’s ‘In the Valley of the Dragon’ and George Davison’s ‘Mountain Fortress (Harlech Castle)’, 1907. The first was mentioned by one reviewer as a lesser-known highlight of the show.
Painting with Light is on until Sunday 25 September at Tate Britain, Millbank.
