In 1848 in the heart of Victorian London several young artists and poets gathered to form a new art movement,, the Pre Raphaelite Brotherhood. They wished to create a fresh style of painting modelled on Goth and late medieval art, which they saw as simpler and more spiritual then that of Raphael and the High Renaissance. Turning for their subjects to tales from Shakespeare and the Bible, Arthurian legend and Greek myth, William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown, John Everett Millais, and others evoked a detailed world rich with colours and symbols and imbued with a spirit of romance.

A decade later, Edward Burne Jones and William Morris led a second generation of English painters who applied the ideals of the Pre Raphaelites not only to painting and poetry bu also to illustrated books and interior design, making works of superb craftsmanship and unsurpassed imagination.

This book explores the vivid art and bohemian lives of the Pre Raphaelites artists, authors of some of the most beloved paintings of all time.
