The art of John Everett Millais
Sir John Everett Millais (1829-1896), was an English painter and illustrator, one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. A child prodigy at eleven, he was the youngest student to enter the Royal Academy schools and was selected as an associate member of the Royal Academy in 1853 soon becoming a full member, and a successful and prominent active participant.

2019 is The Year of Rembrandt with celebrations taking place throughout Europe to mark 350 years since the artist’s death (1669). Dulwich Picture Gallery will stage London’s Rembrandt moment with an innovative exhibition that aims to refresh the way that we look at works by this incomparable Dutch Master. Along with many firsts, this show will bring the captivating painting Philemon and Baucis (National Gallery of Art, Washington) to the UK for the first time. ‘Rembrandt’s Light’ will bring together 35 carefully selected international loans that focus on Rembrandt’s mastery of light and visual storytelling, concentrating on his greatest years from 1639-1658, when he lived in his ideal house at Breestraat in the heart of Amsterdam (today the Museum Het Rembrandthuis).

Sunday 22nd March 2020 - Saatchi Gallery King Tutankhamun Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh
The largest number of King Tutankhamun treasures ever to leave Egypt will be in London for an exhibition which organisers say will never happen again. It will have 150 original artefacts from Tutankhamun’s tomb, 60 of which have never left Egypt before. The objects will include a gold inlaid miniature coffin which contained the king’s liver after it was removed during the mummification process, a gilded wooden bed with carved lion feet probably made specially for Tutankhamun’s funeral and a gilded wooden shrine showing intimate scenes of royal domestic harmony. One of two life-sized guardian statues of the king, which flanked the sealed entrance to his burial chamber, will also be among the artefacts leaving Cairo for the first time.
As we have to pay for the tickets soon please book by 9th October 2019
