The Prioress' Tale, Sir Edward Burne-Jones, 1865-1898, gouache on paper, Delaware Art Museum, Samuel and Mary R. Bancroft Memorial, 1935.The Pre-Raphaelite movement began in 1848, when three young British art students -- Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt, and John Everett Millais -- banded together with other like-minded artists to revolutionize British art. Rebelling against the artistic traditions of the Royal Academy, they preferred the simplicity and monastic principles of late medieval art preceding the Renaissance master, Raphael. The Pre-Raphaelite collection of the Delaware Art Museum is the most significant outside Great Britain. Included in this exhibition are a large group of oils and watercolors by Rossetti, as well as works by Edward Burne-Jones, Fredrick Sandys, Ford Madox Brown, Hunt, Millais, and others. Complementing this array of two-dimensional works are decorative arts that embody the genesis of the Arts and Crafts movement, including two chairs designed by William Morris and Rossetti, jewelry, ceramics, and metalwork.

SAINT PETER AND THE VATICAN: The Legacy of the Popes

Henry Auguste and Nitot, Paris, Papal Tiara of Pope Pius VII,gift from Napolean Bonaparte, cask: wood, velvet, silk; crown: gold, precious stones; topThe history of the Papacy is as old as Christianity itself. The Popes were the successors of the Apostle Peter and have governed the Catholic Church for nearly 2000 years. In our own time, the Popes have become some of the most important of world spiritual leaders, but the ministry has actually changed very little over time. The more than 350 extraordinary objects assembled to illustrate this rich history will be drawn not only from the vast collections of the Vatican Museums, but also from the churches and archives administered by the Vatican. Architectural settings have been designed to display the works in context, which include such relics as the Sarcophagus of the Good Shepherd (early 4th century) and the Mandylion of Edessa (c. 3rd-5th century), which is by far the oldest image of Jesus Christ preserved in Rome, as well as works by well known artists such as Giotto, Bernini, Cellini, and Canova. This is the largest exhibition from the Vatican to come to North America, and the first major exhibition to contain objects from the Pontifical Sacristy.
