Description from Artscapes UK:
In this talk we’ll focus on the bad boys of the Victorian art world: the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood, a gathering of student revolutionaries determined to re-shape the cultural face of Britain. As industrialization drastically changed the face of the cities around them John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt and Dante Gabriel Rossetti searched for beauty and truth in their artistic heritage. Settling on the style of art before Raphael, they charged the mood of 15th century paintings with morals of modernity bound up in the beauty of the natural world. Themes of sex, gender, poetry, myth and aestheticism are explored through these often overlooked, exquisitely painted canvases.
