In 1848, a core group of artists, initially led by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt, and John Everett Millias, formed the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. These impassioned youthful artists sought to combat what they considered the stale English academic tradition in paintings. Paying careful attention to detail, the Pre-Raphaelites wanted to recapture the simplicity and high moral tone of medieval painting and design. English romantic painter Sir Edward Burne-Jones, one of the most important contributors to the second phase or the Pre-Raphaelite art movement, shared the ideals and concerns of the Brotherhood, and became a pupil of Rossetti's.
This book contains thirty Pre-Raphaelite painting outlines, with the full colour images available on the inside covers. Use this colour scheme as a guide or change the colours to create your own adaptation.
