Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810966115, Hardcover)

The work of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood-William Morris, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, William Holman Hunt, and John Everett Millais, among others-is endlessly popular. This beautiful volume brings together for the first time the V&A's magnificent collection of Pre-Raphaelite art in all mediums.

Furniture, jewelry, photography, book illustration, interior design, ceramics, and textiles are all represented alongside paintings and drawings, telling the fascinating story of the Pre-Raphaelite movement and its development into Aestheticism. In addition to showcasing many beautiful finished works, the book features preparatory drawings, which demonstrate the working practices of key members of the movement as well as their sources of inspiration. Emphasizing the close relationship between the fine and decorative arts in the works of the Pre-Raphaelites, the book sheds new light on this fascintating circle of artists.

"This book also uncovers links between the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the avant-garde Aesthetic movement of the 1870s, by focusing on shared themes ranging from the 'fallen woman' to the romance of the Arthurian legends. In doing so, it unravels an alternative history of the Pre-Raphaelites - one that encourages us to open our eyes to the unexpected enthusiasms of the men and women who challenged the Victorian establishment."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
