Dr Jan Marsh, Curator. Looking back at Pre-Raphaelite London Many famous Pre-Raphaelite painters are known for featuring strikingly beautiful women in their work. The male artists of the 19th-century movement are collectively known as the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Looking back at Pre-Raphaelite London. In 1848, the young British artists of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood sparked a revolution in the art world. Striking out against what they viewed as the stuffy artifice of the Royal Academy, three students – Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais – started a secret society. Many famous Pre-Raphaelite painters are known for featuring strikingly beautiful women in their work.

The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, formed in 1848, was a trio of rebellious young men – William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and John Everett Millais – who had become disillusioned with what they perceived as a lack of natural beauty in art. They wanted to paint from life, and so enlisted a number of women – dressmakers, servants, sisters, mistresses – to model for them

National Portrait Gallery, London. Women supported the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, as lovers, helpers and models – but they were rewarded with paintings that depicted them as objects of fantasy. Like the Barbican’s Modern Couples exhibition last year, the show reminds us that a work of art seldom springs, magnificent, from a single imagination, but is to an extent the product of a social group.

Or was it? ‘Pre-Raphaelite Sisters’ at the National Portrait Gallery doesn’t just reclaim twelve women closely associated with the Brotherhood – working as artists, models, poets and muses – it radically re-writes the history of the British art movement. It does so by showing it wasn't the sole creation of a small group of male artists and that its most famous artworks are only the tip of the Pre-Raph iceberg. The exhibition opens with the best-known names: Christina Rossetti, Effie Gray Millais and Elizabeth Siddal

For any reader who just can't get enough info about that astounding 19th-century art movement, here's another entertaining, accurate, and informative book by Pre-Raphaelite expert Jan Marsh.
This book is replete with interesting tidbits about about the greatest artists of the movement, including William Holman Hunt, Edward Burne-Jones, and of course, Dante Gabriel Rossetti. It provides just enough historical information to give some insight into the artists' inspiration, but steers clear of unnecessary biographical information and opinionated fluff.
Criticism? Well, yes. This book is not as thoroughly researched as the author's biographies of Elizabeth Siddal and Christina Rossetti, nor is it as lush with paintings and photographs as Marsh's "Pre-Raphaelite Women". It probably a bit too in-depth to be of much interest to those readers with no familiarity with the works of the Pre-Raphaelites. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this, and the other books of Jan Marsh, to anyone wishing to find out more about the Pre-Raphaelites.
