OverviewThe Pre Raphaelites are often regarded as Britain's first modern art movement. The course will introduce the Brotherhood, its followers and the artists inspired by its work. The course will complement a major exhibition of the PRB at the Tate.
DescriptionThe course will concentrate on the founders of the movement, John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt and the poet and painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti. We will examine in detail works in the visual arts by these artists, and investigate their influence on a generation of younger artists and designers. There will also be an examination of the role played in the development of the movement by the women in and around it - artists, models, wives and muses.
