Overview

Pre-Raphaelites by Christopher Wood, Outlet Book Company Staff, Random House Value Publishing Staff

The romantic paintings of the Pre-Raphaelites move us with their portrayals of classical myth, medieval chivalry, and Victorian social themes. And did you know that some of the most remarkable and beautiful landscapes in all of British art are the work of Pre-Raphaelite artists? Chart the rise and legacy of Pre-Raphaelitism and see how the most admired and recognized British art movement was born in 1848 of a revolutionary desire to change the conventions of art. The Pre-Raphaelites' scrupulous attention to natural details is evident in dozens of paintings that are reproduced in color and black-and-white illustrations. The works of over 40 artists are represented, including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais, Arthur Hughes, Edward Burne-Jones, John William Waterhouse, and Ford Madox Brown. An authoritatively written survey beckons us to admire the work of the Pre-Raphaelites time and again. 10 1/8 X 12 3/16. 120 Color Illustrations,40 B&W Illustrations
