The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (for short, PRB) was a group of English painters, poets, and critics, founded in 1848 by William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. It was a group which kept evolving and expanding until modern art eclipsed it. It later became more simply known as the Pre-Raphaelites. It was ignored for much of the twentieth century. Then it experienced a revival and re-appreciation in the late twentieth century, which continues to this day.
The group’s goal was to return to Quattrocento Italian art from the Renaissance. That art was known for being very detailed, with intense colors and complicated design composition. The group disliked Raphael’s art plus everyone who had followed in his wake. Thus the PRB name was perfect because it showed its preference for only art which had come before Raphael’s. The PRB was interested in medieval culture. They believed it had a spiritual and creative integrity which needed to be re-discovered in the art world. Rossetti, Burne-Jones and Morris were especially keen on medieval art and culture.
By 1853 the original movement had dissolved. However, a much looser association among these artists emerged instead, which was more tolerant of divergent directions they were all taking. Thus, the Pre-Raphaelite movement today is associated with this second more expanded and looser art movement. This also includes all the evocative images of women produced by Rossetti and others. These women had been nowhere in the original PRB concept. Yet today’s art viewer is likely to think of those women first when the term Pre-Raphaelites is used.
