MANCHESTER.- This autumn Manchester Art Gallery stages the first international exhibition in over 40 years dedicated to the life and work of Pre-Raphaelite master William Holman Hunt.
For the first time ever, you can see all three versions of Hunt's world famous painting The Light of the World displayed together, alongside popular works such as The Awakening Conscience and Isabella and the Pot of Basil.
It's an opportunity to see rarely shown drawings and watercolours by Hunt, including a self-portrait on loan from the Uffizi gallery, Florence, Italy.
These are complemented by favourite works from the gallery's own collection including The Hireling Shepherd and The Scapegoat.
Find out more about Hunt's central role in the radical Pre-Raphaelite art movement too. Displays including maps, photographs and letters trace his life in the UK and periods of residence in the Middle East.
Explore contemporary views of Hunt's work through interactive displays created by families of different faiths. Add your own thoughts about Hunt's religious paintings and their continuing political relevance today.
