The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (P.R.B.) was founded in 1848 by William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, who were later joined by four other members. The P.R.B. was a short-lived union of artists, but their aesthetic and artistic ideals had a strong and lasting influence on British art. They inspired many followers and will be discussed here in the broader context of British later 19th-century art and art criticism. The lecture will focus on the influence of John Ruskin on the P.R.B.s, and discuss related styles and movements, such as Aestheticism (with particular focus on James M. Whistler) and Arts and Crafts. Drawing on a recent exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, the lecture will also highlight the often-overlooked women of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, and how Pre-Raphaelite aesthetics still play a major part in fashion, photography and pop music today.
