"A Tale to Tell"
2002-12-20 until 2003-10-12
Auckland Art Gallery
Auckland, , NZ

This exhibition is a follow up to "Love & Death: Art in the age of Queen Victoria", an exhibition which featured the most dramatic paintings from late 19th Century Britain where the paintings depict the popular stories that fascinated Queen Victorian audiences. The Gallery is highlighting its own Victorian collection in A tale to tell.

Nineteenth century painters loved to depict a moment in a narrative drawn from history, literature or the society of their own time. Many Victorian paintings were constructed so that the spectator could complete the narrative in their own way.
