There is just over a week left to catch Pre-Raphaelites: Beauty and Rebellion at the Walker Art Gallery. To celebrate its successful run we are delighted to be giving away a signed exhibition catalogue.

The 128 page full-colour publication by writer, art historian and curator Christopher Newall, features more than 100 works by celebrated Pre-Raphaelite artists.

The book positions Liverpool as the Victorian art capital of the North and examines the patrons and painters in Liverpool who embraced the  Pre-Raphaelite movement. Essays explore the relationship between artists such as Ford Madox Brown and Rossetti and their Liverpool contemporaries, collectors and the institutions that welcomed them, notably the forward-thinking Liverpool Academy. Featuring insights from contributing writers Ann Bukantas and David Taylor, patronage is explored as an important aspect of British artistic culture in the 19th century.

To win a signed copy of the catalogue you need to answer the following question:

Our lead marketing image is the beautiful painting ‘In the Grass’ from Museums Sheffield collection, but who is the artist?

Email your answer, along with your name, email address and telephone number to by midnight on Sunday 5 June.

We’ll email the winner to let them know that they’ve been successful by 5pm on Wednesday 8 June.

Good luck, but remember if you’re unsuccessful the book is available to buy online or at the gallery.

    I did the tour of the Pre-Raphaelite exhibition on Thursday with five friends. We all thought that the guide, Emma, was excellent. She was very knowledgeable, a good communicator and clearly enjoyed what she was doing.

    Great exhibition,great guide,
    Thank you.
