The Pre-Raphaelite RevoltStreaming Video - 2005
Some of the most widely known paintings in the history of English art were produced by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, whose work stands out as the most intensely romantic aspect of Victorian painting in England. Founded in 1848 to protest against the outmoded academic conventions of the day, the Brotherhood's influence lasted until the end of the century, affecting fashion, interior design, and literature. This program explores the early years of the group and examines the works of Millais, Ruskin, Ford Madox Brown, Holman Hunt, Arthur Hughes, and Rossetti. Over thirty paintings and nearly fifty drawings are seen in the program. The commentary for the program includes the poetry of Tennyson, Christina Rossetti, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
