Three British art students – Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Everett Millais, and William Holman Hunt – launched the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848. Shaped by the Industrial Revolution, the 19th century taste for Italian “primitives,” and an avoidance of the academic tradition; the PRB was very much a product of their time. Inspired by scripture, English poetry and Arthurian legends, their style is characterized by gem-like colors and meticulous details. Although remembered as a “brotherhood,” several women artists were integral to the group … we will look at a few “sisters” too.
