Reading the Pre-Raphaelites


0 item(s)

By Tim Barringer

Noted for it's vivid use of colour, elaborate use of symbols, and dedication to close observation of the natural world, the work of the Pre-Raphaelite artists combines a deep engagement with the past and a modern realism that exemplifies the concerns of the age of steam travel. Reading the Pre-Raphaelites traces the history of this artistic movement. Individual chapters provide core concepts for understanding the Pre-Raphaelite engagement with medieval revivalism, truth to nature, modern life, the reconciliation of the religiou image and realism in the nineteenth century, and the transition from Pre-Raphaeliteism to the Asthetic movement.
