In Victorian England, with the country swept up in the Industrial Revolution, the Pre-Raphaelites, close to William Morris’ Arts and Crafts movement, yearned for a return to bygone values. Wishing to revive the pure and noble forms of the Italian Renaissance, the major painters of the circle (such as John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Holman Hunt) favoured realism and biblical themes over the academicism of the time. This work, with its captivating text and rich illustrations, describes with enthusiasm this singular movement which notably inspired Art Nouveau and Symbolism.

A provocative interdisciplinary study of the Victorian novel and Pre-Raphaelite art, this book offers a new understanding of Victorian novels through Pre-Raphaelite paintings. Concentrating on Elizabeth Gaskell, Wilkie Collins, George Eliot, and Thomas Hardy and aligning each novelist with specific painters, this work interprets narrative redrawings of Pre-Raphaelite paintings within a range of cultural contexts as well as alongside recent theoretical work on gender. Letters, reviews, and journals convincingly reinforce the contentions about the novels and their connection with paintings. Featuring color reproductions of Pre-Raphaelite paintings, this book reveals the great achievement of Pre-Raphaelite art and its impact on the Victorian novel. Arguing for the direct relationship between Pre-Raphaelite painting and the Victorian novel, this book fills a gap in the currently available literature devoted to the Victorian novel, the Pre-Raphaelites, and the connection of Pre-Raphaelite art to Victorian poetry. Visual readings of the Victorian novel channel the twenty-first-century readers' desire for the visual into the exploration of Pre-Raphaelite art in the Victorian novel, in the process offering fresh insights into the representation of gender in Victorian culture. Through a textual and a visual journey, this work reveals a new approach to the Victorian novel and Pre-Raphaelite art with profound implications for the study of both.

The Pre-Raphaelites formed in London in 1848. Its chief members were Holman Hunt, Millais and Rossetti. As a group they lasted for little more than a decade, but gave a new direction to Victorian art which lasted into the 20th century. They determined to paint from nature, with objective truthfulness, emulating the work of the great Italian artists before Raphael. They turned to the Bible and classical mythology for inspiration, and some of their best-known works are shown in this book, including Hunt's Light of the World; and Millais' Christ in the House of His Parents.

"Re-framing the Pre-Raphaelites is a collection of essays by leading scholars in the field of Pre-Raphaelite studies. Some essays are case studies of well-known visual and literary works by founder members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood; others explore meanings generated by Pre-Raphaelite works on specific themes and define the cultural work done by them. There are essays on John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown, Joanna Boyce, Edward Burne-Jones and other artists associated with the Pre-Raphaelites. Among the subjects discussed are gender, class, ethnicity, national and regional identity, patronage, the position of the professional woman artist, the nude, images of women and the Victorian cult of death. Some of the authors treat their chosen subject in a mainly art-historical context with a focus on new scholarly research. A number of the essays, in contrast, are informed by post-structuralist, feminist and psychoanalytic theories. These theoretical approaches lead the reader to consider both familiar and lesser-known works in new, and often controversial, frameworks and should provoke further theoretical and historical debate in this field." "Several of the essays are based on papers given at the Pre-Raphaelite session of the 1994 Conference of the Association of Art Historians."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

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.

The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was formed in 1848--a year of numerous uprisings in Europe--in order to reintroduce the high principles and "innocence" of Renaissance art as practiced prior to the master Raphael. The three most important members of this at first tightly knit group were Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Everett Millais, and William Holman Hunt. Other artists took up the Pre-Raphaelite cause prominent among these were Edward Burne-Jones, and William Morris, whose singularly recognizable style would greatly influence future aesthetic design. Illustrated with 100 full-color reproductions, this volume reveals how this influential group succeeded in shaking off the gloom of the Victorian age to greet a new day with uncommonly fresh eyes.
