AbstractThe Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was founded in 1848 when a group of young artists joined together in an attempt to revitalize contemporary art. Their work provoked censure from critics and shocked reactions from the public, yet from the Pre-Raphaelite circle emerged some of the greatest artists of the 19th century -- Rossetti, Millais, Holman Hunt, and the decorative artist William Morris. "The Pre-Raphaelites and Their World" discusses the lives and work of these friends and arch-rivals. Illustrated with photographs of the artists and reproductions of some of their finest paintings, it includes a history of the society from which the artists emerged, with a discussion of the position of women and the role of religion and literature in Pre-Raphaelite art.
