The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood

In September 1848 seven young men; John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt, William Michael Rossetti, Thomas Woolner, Frederic George Stephens and James Collinson, formed the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (P.R.B.)

"From its origins Pre-Raphaelitism was characterised by by innovative stylistic choices and reformist aesthetic, social, political and religious thinking. The radicalism of the Pre-Raphaelites lay in a refusal to accept the conventions revered by their teachers and society at large; in their insistence on getting to the root or origin of artistic, and sometimes also social and political, problems; and in their commitment to fundamental change." - Tim Barringer & Jason Rosenfeld
