‪Thursday 24th August 2023, My husband and I drove to Falmouth, to go to visit the King Arthur Exhibition at Falmouth Art Gallery. We parked our car in the car park at the top of the hill and walked down Warren Hill, a 1/20 hill, it was fine going down, but coming back was a nightmare. We were both out of breath.

The Legend of King Arthur Exhibition is a Pre-Raphaelite Love Story, which has been touring around the country first in London, the Cumbria and concluding in Falmouth in Cornwall. The exhibition depicted the triangular interdependency that exists between Arthurian legend, Pre-Raphaelite artists and locations linked to the Arthurian legend, with a focus on Cornwall. The exhibition introduced people to the story of King Arthur and combined arts and heritage to increase the rich cultural heritage of Cornwall locally, nationally and internationally.

The exhibition brought together over 60 iconic works of art and major loans from public and private collections of Pre-Raphaelite art both in the UK and overseas. All the artworks selected were specific to the King Arthur story as told by Thomas Malory in ‘Le Morte d’Arthur’, and Tennyson’s ‘The Lady of Shalott’ both of which inspired the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood and their followers as source material for their paintings.

This incredible line-up of Pre-Raphaelite artists includes: Eleanor Fortescue-Brickdale, Edward Burne-Jones, William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Emma Sandys and Elizabeth Siddal.

The exhibition provided an opportunity to bring together large, ornately framed, oil paintings, sketches and oil studies, illustrated books, sketchbooks and etchings which all explore some aspect of the King Arthur legend through the reactionary lens of the Pre-Raphaelite artists and their followers who from 1848 onwards banded together to challenge what they saw as dull history painting exhibited annually at the Royal Academy.

The art gallery had John William Waterhouse’s, ‘The Lady of Shalott’ – from the poem by Tennyson, oil on canvas. This had been presented to the Corporation of Falmouth in 1923 by Alfred A. de Pass, in memory of his sons.

William Morris and subsequently Sir Edward Coley Burne Jones had a mutual obsession with the King Arthur legend. The latter wrote Nothing was ever like Morte d’Arthur – I don’t mean any book or any one poem – something that can never be written, I mean, and can never go out of the heart. This romantic sincerity of vision was also reflected by many other Pre- Raphaelite artists.

The curator of the Falmouth art gallery even managed to secure the entire ‘Lady of Shalott’ series of paintings by John William Waterhouse painted over a twenty year period. These have never been exhibited together in the UK and provided a unique opportunity to see a great artist re-interpreting a popular theme

A fully illustrated book of essays by internationally recognised Arthurian specialists exploring the legend and its influence on the Victorian period accompanied the exhibition. My husband and I purchased a copy of the book as we are both Pre-Raphaelite fans.

We spent nearly all the day in Falmouth Art Gallery as it was wonderful and so inspiring. There were even two of ‘The Grail Tapestry’s’ from Birmingham Art Gallery there. my husbandand I took lots of photos of the wonderful artwork. I found it so inspiring that I wrote two poems whilst I was here called ‘Transcendence’ and ‘Entanglement’.

If you are a Pre-Raphaelite Fan Then Visit Here While You Have The Chance.

‪The current Pre-Raphaelite exhibition is smaller than I expected, but well displayed (except for one painting in a corner with very reflective glass) & has some stunning paintings, especially the Waterhouse 'Lady of Shalott' series, some by lesser know female artists, a few interesting sketches & two huge Morris/Burne-Jones tapestries. It is tranquil & best of all free - ends soon, so grab it while you can!‬

‪The pre raphaelite exhibition of King Arthur paintings was an amazing surprise. Only popped in out of a rain shower and discovered this free exhibition as we hadn't seen the sign outside as it was so high up above the entrance. We can definitely recommend allowing plenty of time for a visit. ‬

‪Made a special trip to see The Lady of Shalott while she is here, one of our great beauties. It was lovely to see this painting in Falmouth, having only seen it (many times) at Tate Britain. Part of a really good travelling exhibition exploring the legend of King Arthur seen through Pre-Raphaelite eyes, this is a real treat in a small, friendly gallery. 10 out of 10.‬

‪Lovely to see some fine pieces of art albeit not vast. Some of the lighting is poor on certain pieces which makes it a challenge to see what the artist is trying to achieve. ‬
