I have spotted this upcoming online lecture which is bound to be an aesthetic delight. The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford are hosting an online lecture this Wednesday 8th September 2021 entitled Cultivating Beauty: Flowers and Gardens in Pre-Raphaelite Art. The talk will be presented by Dr Lindsay Wells.

According to the blurb:

From lilies and roses to poppies and pansies, flowers are ubiquitous in the art of the British Pre-Raphaelites. This talk will explore how Pre-Raphaelite painters engaged with Victorian gardening trends to craft their distinctive floral imagery.

The online lecture will be broadcast at 2pm (BST) and cost a mere £4 to attend.
