Or the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, refers to a group of 19thC English artists, poets and critics who challenged contemporary aesthetics and in particular the Royal Academy, and harked back to the less formalized style and content of art prior to the 16thC Italian Renaissance painter Raphael. Their works typically treat idealistic and romantic subject matters in a realist manner, showcasing exquisite skill, craftsmanship and talent. Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rosetti were the founders.
