    The Pre-Raphaelites: An Introduction To The Great Masters Of The Pre-Raphaelite Movement

    The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, founded in 1848, had a dynamic influence upon the Victorian era. The painters, including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais, fought against an increasingly mechanized society to establish the artists as a creative individual attempting to raise art from the triviality into which it had fallen. This commitment was combined with a love of literature and history, and in particular a passionate interest in the art preceding the period of Raphael and the great Renaissance masters, an art which seemed to mirror their aims. Moreover, their ambitions encouraged artists in all fields to adopt new aesthetics.

    This fine survey of the Pre-Raphaelite movement presents a careful selection of its most famous and enduring images.

    Includes 88 illustrations, 51 in colour.
