Tate Britain presents this first major exhibition to celebrate the spirited conversation between early photography and British art.

About

It brings together photographs, paintings and sculptures including Pre-Raphaelite, Aesthetic and British Impressionist works.

Spanning 75 years across the Victorian and Edwardian ages, the exhibition opens with the experimental beginnings of photography in dialogue with painters such as J.M.W. Turner and concludes with its flowering as an independent international art form.

Stunning works by John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, JAM Whistler, John Singer Sargent, John William Waterhouse and others will for the first time be shown alongside ravishing photographs which they inspired and which were inspired by them.
