The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was a group of English painters, poets and critics, founded in 1848 by John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Holman Hunt. Their art's romanticism, attention to detail and jewel-like colours have ensured their eternal popularity. This beautifully illustrated reference book, now back in print, is packed with examples of work by the key proponent Millais, and his many contemporaries.
Beginning with an overview of the movement it goes on to discuss the art in the context of society, place, influences, and styles and techniques. It is an ideal gift for art lovers or those new.
