Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-garde
Accompanying a major international touring exhibition, this book examines works in a wide variety of media, demonstrating the broad scope of the movement's revolutionary ideas about art, design and society. Many of the most famous Pre-Raphaelite paintings are featured, including Millais' Ophelia and Madox Brown's The Last of England, alongside less familiar works. In contrast with previous Pre-Raphaelite, surveys, sculpture, photography and the applied arts are also included, the latter showing the important role the Brotherhood played in the early development of the Arts and Crafts movement and the socialist ideas of the poet, designer and theorist, William Morris. Extensively illustrated, with essays by leading international authorities in the field, this will be the key work on the Pre-Raphaelites for years to come.
