We've found that fans of the Pre-Raphaelite movement are some of the most passionate art lovers out there!

Whether you're a Pre-Raphaelite buff yourself or you know someone who loves all things Rossetti,  we have plenty to browse in our Pre-Raphaelites online shop.

Find out our top picks inspired by the 'Pre-Raphaelites: Beauty and Rebellion' exhibition, opening 12 February at the Walker Art Gallery:

1. Got a brand new bag

william-morris-tapestry-bag

The birds and flowers on this Pre-Raphaelite-inspired tapestry bag are making us think about Spring already - a new bag for a new season!

2. Pretty and practical

william-morris-scarf

Designer William Morris once said "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." We think this 100% silk scarf with a William Morris design is both pretty and practical.

3.  Rebel, rebel

"...they were new, radical and determined to paint according to their principles"

Pre-Raphaelite expert Christopher Newall introduces fascinating new research into Pre-Raphaelite paintings and collectors in this full-colour catalogue, which accompanies our 'Beauty and Rebellion' exhibition.

4. Sweethearts and wives

Featured in our shop for the first time, the painting 'Sweethearts and Wives' by John Ingle Lee adorns this decorative plate, depicting a farewell scene at Liverpool docks.

5. Flame-haired beauty

mug-in-the-grass-front

A classic Pre-Raphaelite muse, complete with auburn locks, pale skin and a beguiling stare, features on this sturdy mug. A great memento from the 'Beauty and Rebellion' exhibition at the Walker.

6. Truth to nature

rainbow-print

Pre-Raphaelite artists often painted their landscapes while outdoors, as they were concerned with what they called; 'truth to nature'. Lose yourself in this evocative rural landscape by William Davis and take home your very own print.
