Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Set against the background of an opulent and affluent Victorian art establishment, Pre-Raphaelites at Home tells the story of a fiery group of artists whose ideas — which were seen as revolutionary — and avant-garde lifestyle — deemed impossibly bohemian — were at odds with the conventional wisdom of the time.

Led by the charismatic Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the semi-secret Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood attracted some of the most colorful and complex personalities of the age, including William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais, Ford Madox Brown, and Edward Burne-Jones. These artists took their creative inspiration not from the works of other painters, but directly from nature. Female beauty was central to their art; friendship, to their lives.

The lively, entertaining narrative is lavishly illustrated throughout with beautiful color reproductions of Pre-Raphaelite paintings, as well as wonderful photographs of the artists and their homes and studios.
