Who were the Pre-Raphaelites?
The Pre-Raphaelite movement began as the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, a group of English painters, poets and critics who set out to reform the art of their day. They favored brilliant colors, rich detail, and complex unconventional compositions, and rejected what they considered the formulaic compositions of artists such as Raphael. They loved the rich colors of Quattro cento Italian and Flemish art, and developed techniques to achieve a jewel-like brilliance and clarity of color.
Pre-Raphaelites were highly influenced by Romantic poetry, the forms of nature, and Medieval art, and these interests are reflected in their style and their themes. Many of these paintings portray scenes from mythology and literature: Pandora, Psyche, Ophelia, Flora, the Lady of Shallot, stories of King Arthur and the Grail, Dante and Beatrice, goddesses and regal ladies, mermaids and nymphs. Beautiful women are perhaps their most well known subjects.
They eventually split into two groups, one pursuing a Medievalist style and the other (including Millais) favoring realism, but both groups continued to believe that all art was essentially spiritual. Rossetti's medieval themes influenced the famous designer William Morris, known for his colorful, intricate patterns inspired by the forms of nature. The Pre-Raphaelite movement influenced many later painters as well, especially the European Symbolist movement.
Since the 1970s there has been continually growing interest in the works of Pre-Raphaelite artists and those associated with the style. Pre-Raphaelite paintings are often beloved by those interested in Celtic mythology and spirituality, and they are very popular with artists working in collage, altered art and mixed media!
