Pre-Raphaelite Painting and Nineteenth-Century Realism
Marcia WernerISBN: 0521824680; 9780521824682;
Book DescriptionMarcia Werner challenges several long-standing beliefs about the Pre-Raphaelite painting movement, often characterized as a disparate group who pursued divergent, even antithetical goals. Werner argues that the Pre-Raphaelites developed and shared an artistic philosophy comprehensive enough to embrace all of their differences. She reconstructs this credo through careful study of writings by Pre-Raphaelite artists.
