Pre-Raphaelites Masterpieces of Art

About The Book

The Pre-Raphaelites, earlier known as the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, were a society of English artists with an incredible wealth of talent. Their name was a reference to their rejection of the Renaissance master Raphael and the immensely popular classical, elegant poses that had come to be fashionable. Instead, they included abundant colour and detail in their works, leading their movement to become an integral and controversial part of art history, which is explored in this beautifully illustrated new book.
