Pre-Raphaelite Artwork
The pre-raphaelites were a group founded in 1848 by Dante Rossetti among others. The group's intention was to reform art by rejecting what they considered to be the mechanistic approach first adopted by the mannerist artists who succeeded Raphael and Michelangelo. They believed that the classical poses and elegant compositions of Raphael in particular had been a corrupting influence on the academic teaching of art. Their artwork is often characterized by classical romantic motifs and and scenes from mythology.
