The Pre-Raphaelites (World of Art)

by

The Pre-Raphaelites (World of Art) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

157 illustrations, 21 in colour. The works of the Pre-Raphaelites are among the best known and best loved of all English paintings, and yet there has long been a tendency to dismiss them as mere Victorian, and to deny them their proper status as works of art. This pioneering critical history places the movement in its historical setting, relating the individual painters and their art to the larger concerns of nineteenth-century society.

Synopsis:

Surveys the origins, development, techniques, approaches, principles, motifs, and major paintings of the nineteenth-century British school, relating the painters and their works to their society.
