The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and its Legacies
15th July @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Today, the term ‘Pre-Raphaelite’ is widely used to describe a lot of late-Victorian and early-Edwardian painting. The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood – after which the style of artwork is named – was established in 1848 and had pretty much disbanded by 1853. It also had very specific ideologies and guidelines to which its members subscribed.
This talk will introduce the artists of the Brotherhood and their aims for establishing the movement. I will then trace through history how these ideas touched the work of other artists so that we can map just how the term ‘Pre-Raphaelite’ has come to mean so much more than just the paintings signed PRB.
