The Pre-Raphaelites and Italyby Colin Harrison, Christopher Newall, Mauruzio Isabella, Martin Mclaughlin
This important book, published to accompany a major exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, is the first to explore the fascination of the Pre-Raphaelite painters with Italy: its landscape, art and culture. Featuring full-colour illustrations of the 138 paintings in the exhibition, including works in private collections not previously reproduced, The Pre-Raphaelites and Italy examines the relationship of the Pre-Raphaelite brothers to Italy and to each other in a fresh and original way and will be essential reading for all students of 19th-century art and culture.
