La Bella Durmiente en el Museo del Prado.

La muestra, que lleva por lema 'La bella durmiente. Pintura victoriana de Arte de Ponce', reúne una selección de 17 obras (10 pinturas y siete estudios sobre papel) de Frederic Leighton, (1830-1896), Edward Coley Burne-Jones (1833-1898), John E. Millais (1829-1896), Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882), Thomas Seddon (1821-1856) y William Holman Hunt (1827-1910) pertenecientes a distintas etapas de la Hermandad Prerrafaelita.

Con ocasión del cierre temporal del Museo de Arte de Ponce de Puerto Rico, para la renovación y expansión de sus instalaciones, el Museo del Prado presenta esta exposición que contribuye a paliar la escasez de pintura británica en las colecciones del Prado y en el conjunto de las colecciones españolas.

Óleo sobre lienzo, 60 x 127,5 cm

La Hermandad Prerrafaelita -fundada en 1848 por Millais, Hunt y Rossetti- surge en oposición al conservadurismo academicista de la Royal Academy of Arts y al convencionalismo de la época victoriana con la aspiración de recuperar un arte más espontáneo inspirándose en la naturaleza y en la técnica y el simbolismo de los pintores italianos y flamencos del primer Renacimiento.

Edward Coley Burne-Jones
Óleo sobre lienzo, 60 x 132,5 cm

Anticipando movimientos de vanguardia como el simbolismo, las obras del movimiento prerrafaelita se encuentran envueltas en una atmósfera literaria y plasman escenas contemporáneas de temática histórica, social y religiosa en su búsqueda del plano mítico y espiritual para llegar a la pureza de los sentimientos.

Entre las espléndidas obras que conforman la exposición, caben destacar la famosísima Flaming June (Sol ardiente de junio) de Frederic Leighton, y la que es reconocida como obra maestra de Burne-Jones, El sueño del rey Arturo en Avalón, por tratarse de una pintura que, a excepción de su reciente participación en la exposición de Londres, no había salido de Puerto Rico desde que Ferré la adquirió para el Museo de Arte de Ponce en la década de los 60.

Edward Coley Burne-Jones
Óleo sobre lienzo, 277,5 x 635 cm

La obra no había sido prestada antes tanto por su importancia para la colección ponceña como por las dificultades de su traslado dado su gran formato, con más de seis metros de ancho. Se trata de una pintura, fruto de la fascinación de Burne-Jones por la leyenda del rey Arturo –compartida por otros colegas contemporáneos como Rossetti o William Morris-, a la que el artista dedicó los últimos años de su vida, trabajando en su constante reelaboración hasta el día anterior a su muerte. Esta gran tela estará acompañada en la exposición por una serie de bocetos y dibujos preparatorios que ayudarán a entender cómo trabajó el pintor hasta plasmar su imagen de ensueño.

El recorrido por la exposición muestra extraordinarios ejemplos de los fundadores de la Hermandad Prerrafaelita como La señorita Gladis M. Holman Hunt, obra de William Holman Hunt, el artista que más fiel se mantuvo a lo largo de su carrera al lema del grupo: “fidelidad a la naturaleza”

, 1559 de John Everett Millais que desarrolló la tradición de presentar anécdotas imaginarias del pasado como un medio para universalizar los sentimientos de los individuos

I rarely create comments, however i did a few searching and wound up here "La Bella Durmiente en el Museo del Prado.".
And I do have 2 questions for you if you don't mind. Could it be simply me or does it look like a few of these comments come across like coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at other social sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Would you list of every one of your community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net
from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number of websites
for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
I have heard excellent things about Is there a way I can import all my wordpress
content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

You actually make it seem really easy together with your
presentation but I to find this topic to be actually
something which I think I might never understand.
It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
I’m taking a look forward in your next submit, I
will try to get the hang of it!
