Art of the Pre-Raphaelites

Front Cover
Harry N. Abrams, Jun 1, 2007 - Art - 304 pages
In 1848, seven inexperienced young artists banded together to form the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, one of the first and most distinctive group movements in modern art. Through the detailed analysis of the materials, techniques, and working pratices of the artists, this illustrated book examines how Pre-Raphaelite pictures compel the viewer to see more, and more vividly, than traditional painting styles. This intensity of observation reinforces the distinctive subject matter of the pictures - the natural world and the human model, gender identities and sexual relationships, debates on politics, science and religion.
