RADICAL VICTORIANS: It seems that today’s modern artists don’t hold the monopoly on shocking polite society. With its show “Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde,” London’s Tate Britain gallery aims to illustrate that the 19th-century Pre-Raphaelite movement’s key figures, who included Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais, “rebelled against the art establishment of their day…defied convention, provoked critics and entranced audiences.”

The show will spotlight those artists’ colorful, detailed and often ornate works, which took inspiration from a range of disciplines, from literature to classical mythology. Major works include what the Tate describes as Hunt’s “psychedelic” work “The Lady of Shalott,” and Millais’ “Ophelia.”

The exhibition opens Sept. 12 and runs through Jan. 13.
