Thinking Aloud
British Painters of the Victorian Era, with Rita Wright
The names Frederic Leighton and Dante Gabriel Rossetti still reverberate in the halls of art history. In Victorian times, they and their peers often painted scenes and subjects drawn from religious antecedents far removed from their immediate aesthetic purposes. The fuzzy line between religious art and purely aesthetic pursuit comes into focus in this conversation with one of Utah's premiere art educators. We chat with Rita Wright of the BYU Museum of Art, on the afternoon of her evening lecture in the museum's Art History Lecture Series.
