Until 21st April. 14 Broad Street, Oxford
A recently discovered cache of Pre-Raphaelite art has gone on display at Aidan Meller Fine Paintings.
The beautiful drawings had lain neglected for the best part of a century before Mr. Aidan Meller received a phone call from an Abingdon resident, alerting him to their existence. He bought the works as a complete collection and has since been studying them. Gallery staff and leading experts have been working to match the designs to churches and other buildings – both in Oxford and much further afield. The collection includes designs for Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Canon’s Ashby and even one for a window which was destroyed by a Nazi bomb

raid on Bromley in 1941.Many of these enigmatic cartoons – designs for stained glass windows – were made by leading artists at Heaton, Butler and Bayne; and James Powell and Sons. These companies created inspired, technologically innovative expressions of religious experience, elevating British design and the Pre-Raphaelite aesthetic on the global stage.
The exhibition is a chance to discover how the sensual aesthetics of Pre-Raphaelitism – once deemed an outrage in academic circles – eventually came to pervade artistic and religious spheres. The visionary work of Pre-Raphaelite artist and window designer Robert Turnill Bayne features strongly in this show, epitomising the boldness and universality of these artists’ approach to the sacred.
Also featuring in this exhibition are rare drawings by John Everett Millais, one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Pre-Raphaelitism has strong connections in Oxford: key figures such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Morris lived locally, and the Burne-Jones windows at Christ Church are a particular highlight of the movement’s impact on the city.
The reappearance of this rare collection in Oxford, which is attracting the interest of leading experts in the field, is a unique opportunity to experience an exciting and influential period in art history afresh.
