Medea (1889) by Evelyn De Morgan (1855 - 1919)

Evelyn De Morgan (1855 – 1919) was a painter who defied the expectations of her class and gender to become one of the most impressive artists of a generation. Her richly coloured canvases featuring beautifully draped figures, deliver messages of feminism, spirituality and the rejection of war and material wealth, making them incredibly relevant today.

In Greek mythology, Medea was the daughter of King Aeëtes of Colchis, niece of Circe, granddaughter of the sun god Helios, and later wife to the hero Jason, with whom she had two children. In Euripides's play 'Medea', Jason leaves Medea when Creon, king of Corinth, offers him his daughter, Glauce. The play tells about how Medea avenges her husband's betrayal.

Medea is known in most stories as an enchantress. In this painting, Medea can be seen carrying a potion as she plots to tempt back her husband, Jason.

Love Among the Ruins (1873) by Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898)

Edward Burne-Jones is considered one of the most important and accomplished painters of the Pre-Raphaelite movement. With no formal Burne-Jones developed his own distinctive approach, using medieval models as his template but invigorating them with a completely fresh and modern look.

Love Among the Ruins was painted between 1870-73 at a time when Burne-Jones was bridging the romantic strand of Pre-Raphaelitism with the new art movements of Aestheticism and Symbolism. The watercolour is based loosely on a poem by Robert Browning of the same title, but refers more to the artist’s own romance with his model and muse, Maria Zambaco, a member of the wealthy Greek Ionides family. It was to be the first of many works for which Zambaco was the model.

Burne-Jones painted a second version of this work in 1894, this time in oils as the original watercolour had been damaged whilst on loan to an exhibition in Paris when a photographer mistook the watercolour for an oil painting and layered the woman's face with eggwhites. Although thought to be beyond repeair for nearly 20 years, Burne-Jones resurrected the work two years before his death!

The Beloved ('The Bride') by Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882)

The Beloved is inspired by the biblical Song of Solomon. It tells the story of a young woman preparing to marry. Rossetti shows the bride lifting a veil from her face with her eyes fixed directly on the viewer. The bride is surrounded by her attendants. In the foreground is a young Black child, holding roses. The women around the bride appear to have darker skin and hair than she does. Modern commentators suggest that Rossetti is celebrating both beauty and diversity.

The Mandolin (1866) by James Smetham (1821-1889)
James Smetham was an English Pre-Raphaelite and engraver, a follower of Dante Gabriel Rossetti. He studied at the Royal Academy, and worked in a range of genres including religious and literary themes as well as portraiture; but he is perhaps best known as a landscape painter.
The Mandolin is considered his masterpiece, and bears all the hallmarks of Dante Gabriel Rossetti. The model is Ellen Smith, who also sat for Rossetti, and the lute also appears in Rossetti's Christmas Carol of 1867 #jamessmetham

Portrait of Ellen Terry (1864) by George Frederic Watts (1817–1904)
In this portrait, Watts paints love interest Dame Ellen Terry choosing between the picking of camellias and violets from her garden. While the camellias are beautiful in appearance with little scent, the violets in the actress' hands are humbler but with a much sweeter smell. This representation of choice between wordly vanities and higher values was a particular theme for Watts in many of his paintings.
After a short-lived marriage with Watts between 1964-5, Dame Terry went on to marry artist & architect Edward Gordon Craig. This beautiful portrait now resides in the National Portrait Gallery.

Queen Guinevere's Maying (1900) by The Hon. John Maler Collier (1850-1934)

John Collier was much influenced by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema and John Everett Millais. Collier's early training was at the Slade School, working there under its principal E.J.Poynter. Collier regularly exhibited at the Royal Academy and also at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, of which he became vice-President.
Queen Guinevere is the wife and queen of King Arthur in the Arthurian legend. Guinevere has been portrayed as everything from a villainous and opportunistic traitor to a fatally flawed but noble and virtuous lady. In French chivalric romances and the later works based on them, including the influential Le Morte d'Arthur by Thomas Malory, Guinevere is the daughter of King Leodegrance, who had served Arthur's father Uther Pendragon and was entrusted with the Round Table after Uther's death. Queen Guinevere's Maying is a scene from Malory's works in which the cheerful pointlessness of a May Day procession quickly leads to something less innocent.

Oh Swallow, Swallow (1894) by John Mehuish Strudwick (1849-1937)

John Strudwick was an English Pre-Raphaelite painter who was preoccupied by the subject of passing time or of an imagined golden age. In each work the artist blends both Renaissance and Medieval influences. Strudwick's meticulous attention to detail, especially in his treatment of draperies and accessories, led to a very small output of works. Much of Strudwick's rich, deep colours and detailed faces were inspired by Edward Burne-Jones, for whom Strudwick was the principle studio assistant for a considerable period.

The Deceitfullness of Riches (1901) by Eleanor Fortescue Brickdale (1871-1945)

Eleanor Fortescue-Brickdale was an illustrator, painter and watercolour artist with much of her work being in the Pre-Raphaelite style. The artist was influenced by John Byam Liston Shaw, a protégé of John Everett Millais much influenced by John William Waterhouse. Brickdale also produced stained-glass windows and book illustrations, following the Pre-Raphaelite tradition of applied art made famous by William Morris.

Postagem dessa semana no blog: John William Waterhouse e suas pinturas pré-rafaelitas
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Como estou postando todo domingo uma pintura dele, decidi fazer um post para contar melhor sobre a história do artista e suas obras 🌼
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Se você ama pinturas do estilo pré-rafaelita, ou pinturas que retratem o período medieval em geral, com certeza já viu alguma pintura de John William Waterhouse, mesmo sem saber que era de sua autoria. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Suas pinturas ainda hoje são conhecidas principalmente por retratar mulheres, com influência da mitologia grega, celta e medievalismo. Sua pintura mais famosa é "The Lady of Shallott", uma dama que faz parte das lendas arthurianas. Apaixonada por Lancelot, a Dama não consegue aceitar o fato do cavaleiro não amá-la. Foram feitas três versões desse quadro, em 1888, 1894 e 1916. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"The Garden Court (1890) by Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898)

Edward Burne-Jones created a series of four works inspired by the tale of Sleeping Beauty, completed between 1885-90. The Garden Court is the third of four large paintings and depicts weavers having fallen asleep at their loom with walls of the castle that form the backdrop now covered with roses.
Each painting comes with an increiption written by Burne-Jones' lifelong friend William Morris. This one reads: 'The maiden pleasance of the land, Knoweth no stir of voice or hand, No cup the sleeping waters fill, The restless shuttle lieth still.’ The four major panels were first exhibited at Agnew's Gallery in Bond Street, London in 1890. They were then acquired by Sir Alexander Henderson for Buscot Park, Oxfordshire."

After Vespers (1871) by Frederic Lord Leighton, P.R.A. (1830-1896)

Frederic Leighton was a great admirer of Italian Renaissance painting. As one of the most eminent British painters of the 19th Century, his success coincided with the Aesthetic movement of the 1870s and 80s, in which a cult of beauty reigned in literature and the fine arts.

After Vespers typifies Leighton's style of delicacy and refinement. While the ornamental background of the painting appearing to be an adaptation of the mosaics found in St Mark's, Venice, the static woman in the foreground nods to the English Aesthetic movement in which women were painted as serene and mysterious.

This painting was ­exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1872 and again in the posthumous Leighton exhibition of 1897.

The Property Room (1879) by Arthur Hughes (1832-1915)

Arthur Hughes was inspired by the works of his friends, the Pre-Raphaelites, he particularly admired John Everett Millais, and from 1850 adopted their techniques and subject matter. Throughout the 1850 & 60s Hughes painted minutely detailed and highly coloured lyrical and romantic subjects. From 1865 onwards he worked mainly as an illustrator of children's books, producing some fine illustrations for a series of fairy tales by George Macdonald, and for Christina Rossetti's Poems for Children. 'The Property Room' typifies Hughes' reputation of artistic balance between emotion and sentiment, detail and clutter, colour and brightness.

A Private View at The Royal Academy (1881) by William Powell Frith ⚡️link in bio

We are pleased to see this painting on the cover of the newly published book ‘Victorian Artists’ Autograph Replicas’ ⭐️ Edited by Julie F. Codell

Frith’s extraordinary painting depicts many of the most influential figures of the day including Prime Minister William Gladstone, artists Lord Leighton and Millais, writer Oscar Wilde and actors Henry Irving, Ellen Terry and Lily Langtry.
This historically important record and a celebrated satire is the artist’s response to the Aesthetic Movement which challenged the artistic tradition that Frith and his circle held dear. William Powell Frith was a stalwart of the Victorian art scene, his ambitious scenes of modern life attracting huge public interest and achieving the highest figures ever paid at that time to a living artist.

The Private View is considered to be Frith’s last great panorama. When it was shown at the Royal Academy, it was the artist’s sixth painting to require a guard and a rail to protect it from the crowds who flocked to see it #williampowellfrith

Landscape - Twilight by Samuel Palmer (1805-1881)

Throughout Palmer's decade living in Shoreham, Kent (1824-35), the artist painted a series of remarkable landscape scenes. This oil and tempera on board is typical of Palmers idyllic pastoral scenes at the time. Art historian Geoffry Grigson commented on the painting's Christian quality, echoing the Flight into Egypt from the Gospel of Matthew, with a suggestion of an aged pilgrim finding comfort in the heavenly light.
The series 'Landscape-twilight' was subsequently exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1832, 1833 and 1834 #samuelpalmer

"A triple portrait of May Morris by Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882)

For many years, Rossetti worked on English translations of Italian poetry, he later created a method of painting in watercolours, using thick pigments mixed with gum to give rich effects similar to medieval illuminations.
The artist founded the the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848 with William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais, and was later to be the main inspiration for a second generation of artists and writers influenced by the movement, most notably William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones.

This 'triple portrait of May Morris' typifies Rosetti's style of sensuality and medieval revivalism."

By a Clear Well with a Little Field (1883) by Marie Stillman (1844-1927)

Marie Stillman was born to a Greek family living in London. She was a celebrated beauty and modelled for the photographer Julia Margaret Cameron, and for Dante Gabriel Rossetti. An accomplished artist, she studied under the Pre-Raphaelite painter Ford Madox Brown, although her style shows more of the influence of Rossetti.
By a Clear Well, Within a Little Field (1883) is Stillman's third and concluding painting based on Boccaccio’s sonnets, which tells of three young women seated “by a clear well, within a little field” who relate their loves. Two of the women have twined a small branch from the chestnut tree to shield ther faces, as described in the sonnet. The painting's landscape is neither overtly Tuscan, nor recognisably British, and the well and trees could be almost anywhere in western Europe. It was exhibited at the Grosvenor Gallery in 1884.

Edward Burne-Jones, Sidonia von Bork (1860; acquerello e gouache su carta, 333 x 171 mm; Londra, Tate Britain). Nella Gran Bretagna di metà Ottocento, quando il paese era dominato dalla forte personalità della regina Vittoria, sovrana nota per le sue attitudini alla moralità, fautrice del periodo più stabile, florido e longevo della storia del regno d’Inghilterra, aveva visto la nascita il Preraffaellismo, la cui prima fase ha per protagonista Dante Gabriel Rossetti (Londra, 1828 – Birchington-on-Sea, 1882) con le sue donne sensuali, mentre la seconda fase sarà ricordata per i miti e le leggende di Edward Burne-Jones (Birmingham, 1833 – Londra, 1898), spesso ispirato dall'arte italiana. Da quale opera italiana è stato ispirato Burne-Jones in questo dipinto? Lo sveleremo nel post di domani!

La sposa, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, 1865-1866
Londra, Tate Britain.

Il 12 maggio 1828 a Londra nasceva Dante Gabriel Rossetti, uno dei padri del movimento dei Preraffaelliti, ovvero i pittori che si ispiravano alla pittura del Rinascimento italiano prima di Raffaello, in quanto pensavano che fosse quella animata da un sentimento religioso più sincero e autentico: tra i loro principali punti di riferimento si annoverano artisti come il Beato Angelico e il Perugino.

Il dipinto noto come "La sposa" fu realizzato tra il 1865 e il 1866 e si trova oggi alla Tate Britain. Il soggetto è tratto dalla Bibbia, e precisamente dal Cantico dei Cantici, testo nel quale viene esaltata la bellezza della sposa. ⭐Taggaci con finestresullarte⭐ #beniculturali30 #culturalheritage30

Czasem zdarza mi się pooglądać trochę malarstwa i niesiony pasją do orientalizmu z XIXw. chciałem zrobić zdjęcia w takim stylu. Ale po co się inspirować jak można skoczyć w czasie i zabrać z nami Olgę...tylko ta jesień. Staramy się być eko, więc nasz wechikuł czasu jest na energię słoneczną - ciągłe zachmurzenie i deszcze nie załadowały maszyny. Zostało nam zrobić orientalne atelier w domu. I w sumie dobrze, bo żeby ogarnąć taka scenerie to musielibyśmy odwiedzić jakaś kolonie brytyjską, a Brytyjczycy z czasów imperium nie mają poczucia humoru. Nie polecam z nimi imprezować, bo wszystko obraża ich honor i trzeba się pojedynkować, a potem afery z Policją Czasoprzestrzenną, że się pozbyło jakiegoś lorda co miał być królem czy coś tam. Nie polecam.

Z włosami Wioli to jest tak, że zaczynają już żyć własnym życiem. Pomijam że na właścicielce niedługo będą sięgać kolan, ale można je już znaleźć wszędzie. Nieświadomie noszę je ze sobą w kieszeni, plecaku, na aparacie czy we własnych włosach.*
Najpewniej zyskały już własną świadomość i powoli mnie oplatają do swoich celów.
Wiola chce dodać, że też często znajduje w nich jakieś rzeczy typu zapomniane wsuwki, gumki, liście czy patyczki.

Świadkowa ślubem stresowała się bardziej niż biedna Panna Młoda. Wiedziała, że dla przyjaciółki będzie to koniec magii, dlatego na ślub ubrała się na czarno. I choć mówili, że to strój żałobny i zły znak na początek nowego życia, tak Panna Młoda miała tę pociechę, że przynajmniej tak mogą się zbuntować.

Znów podkradliśmy pomysł na zdjęcie od Pana Julesa Josepha Lefebvre.
Panie Julesie , jeżeli istnieje życie po śmierci to mam nadzieję że się spotkamy i będę mógł uścisnąć Pana dłoń i podziękować za możliwość inspiracji. Po tamtej stronie to już pewnie jest święty spokój i ludzie wyluzowani, więc mam nadzieję że wybaczy Pan tak mocne inspiracje Pana pracami.
W sumie odczuwanie czasu tam pewnie też jest inne, to i może będzie czas bym nauczył się malować, to by mnie Pan pouczył. I może jak się nauczę to będziemy już ziomkami i będę mógł mówić Panu Julek.

Chciałem wymyślić jakiś ładny opis do tego zdjecia. Taki że romantyczne zdjęcie i duch ukochanego manifestujący się z lewej strony...
Tylko że dziś wstaliśmy o 5 i z Karoliną, robimy zdjęcia prawie cały dzień w pewnym pałacu.

PS. Mogę polubić pałacowe życie. To teraz się zawijamy po piwo, bo wieczorem koncert pieśni słowiańskich.
Pozdrawiamy z god_of_wine
i god_of_wine z pałacowego kurnika!

Удачи случаются! ☀️и даже в последнее время - нередко)
Этот медальон по живописи Энтони Сэндиса - тому подтверждение.
Низкий подробно проработанный рельеф, роспись глазурями, d - 8,5 см, совместная, как всегда, работа. #наши_медальоны
.
Мы славно поработали перед любимым 4ceramics, что уж тут.
Последняя печь будет разгружена завтра, в ней - два этюда натурщиц, два новых настенных блюда, подставка под торт в виде здоровенной поганки, куча всевозможных чашек, брошек и бусин для бус. Всё в последний день, но нам не привыкать.
Напомним, что самый лучший, самый душевный и самый интересный фестиваль керамики в этот раз пройдет на ЗИЛе, в эти выходные, с 12 до восьми вечера. Нас найти очень просто: первые на втором этаже😊 До встречи!
.
В сториз покажем немного из того, что будет на фестивале.

❗KONKURS❗

Z okazji ponownego otwarcia atelier (tak, można się zapisywać) postanowiliśmy zorganizować konkurs.
Wygrać można wykonane przeze mnie zdjęcie kolodionowe w formacie 18x24cm.
Haczyk jest w tym taki, że wybierzemy najlepszy pomysł jaki się pojawi i to zdjęcie zostanie zrealizowane!

By wziąć udział:
- w komentarzu opisz swój pomysł na zdjęcie, które chciałabyś/chciałbyś zrealizować.
- obserwuj mój profil i profil tajna_pracownia_eteru
- udostępnij w relacji swoje ulubione kolodionowe zdjęcie z mojej galerii i oznacz mnie.

Możesz też dopisać w relacji, że jest konkurs i możesz dać serduszko pod powyższym zdjęciem♥️ Z przedstawionych pomysłów wybierzemy taki który nam się najbardziej podoba i chcemy go zrealizować.
Pamiętaj, że musi być on możliwy do zrobienia w technice mokrego kolodionu i musisz ustać kilka sekund bez ruchu (albo się ruszać, jeżeli Twój pomysł to zakłada).
Dodatkowym atutem będzie jeżeli masz fajne stroje czy gadżety.

Zgłoszenia przyjmujemy do 30.05.2020 do godziny 23.59.
Wynik ogłosimy 1 czerwca.

Dajemy więcej czasu bo liczymy na naprawdę dobre pomysły!
Niech kreatywność będzie z wami!

PS. Zdjęcie będzie realizowane w naszej pracowni w Warszawie oraz chcemy wykonać je do końca września tego roku.
Do wykorzystania mamy i studio i podwórko z dużą ilością krzaków. ---

🎨 Thomas Cooper Gotch🖌Томас Купер Готч (1854-1931)⠀⠀⠀⠀

🌝⠀⠀
Alleluia (detail)⠀
1896⠀
oil on canvas⠀
H.133.3 cm × W.184.1 cm ⠀
🏛  Tate, London⠀

👩 Alleluia is one of a number of compositions by Gotch that were painted throughout the 1890s and 1900s in the new style that the artist adopted following a visit to Italy in 1891-1892.⠀

Along the top of the canvas, inscribed in Gothic lettering on a background of gold leaf, a Latin quotation reads: Sancti tui domine benedicent te gloriam regni tui dicent - Alleluya. ⠀

The inscription is taken from Psalm xlvii: 6 and 7: "Sing praises to God, sing praises: Sing praises unto our King, Sing praises, For God is King of all the earth: Sing praises with understanding".'⠀


👩 Аллилуйя - одна из картин Готча, написанных в течение 1890-х и 1900-х годов в новом стиле, приверженцем которого художник стал после посещения Италии в 1891-1892. ⠀

Вдоль верхней части холста на фоне сусального золота готическими буквами начертана, латинская цитата: Sancti tui domine benedicent te gloriam regni tui dicent -Alleluya. ⠀
Надпись взята из Псалма XLVII: 6 и 7: "Пойте Богу нашему, пойте; пойте Царю нашему, пойте, ибо Бог — Царь всей земли; пойте все разумно".⠀

💒Интерес к истории Ватикана, однажды привел меня отроком к биографии семейства Борджиа, откуда на волне свежести в 2012 году мое вечернее время захватил сериал "The Borgias" руки Нила Джордана. Помимо сюжетных перипетий мне не давали покоя прически папской любовницы Джулии Фарнезе и дочери Лукреции, поэтому задумывая, сей образ, я уже знала, что хочу увидеть на своей голове. Съемка проходила в особом месте - здании цистерцианского монастыря 18 века, ныне превращенном в культурное пространство «Долина Ангелов». Вскоре я поделюсь множеством фотографий, раскрывающих это магическое место, а пока я избрала достаточно классическую фотокарточку, по вине того приятного волнения, коя испытывала, отражаясь в старинном, покрытом пылью десятилетий зеркале. ⏳

Образ в духе эпохи Прерафаэлитов
(Автопортрет)
~

С тебя картины пишет небо солнцем,
В твоих чертах - спокойствие любви,
В глазах сияют страстные огни,
И нежностью твой взгляд всегда смеется.

Так искренности голосом поют
На небе ангелы воображенья сказки:
Все о тебе, да только о тебе прекрасной,
Надежды, веры и любви приют.

С природою твой нежный нрав един,
Портрет твоей любви в глубинах глаз-
По правде мы живем только сейчас,
И взгляд твой - это вечный нежный мир.

Когда б тебя не стало на земле,
Моего мира тоже бы не стало,
И мне всегда тебя бывает мало,
Когда бы я не думал о тебе.

Когда бывает томно ты вздохнешь,
Вдруг птицы замолчат в безмолвном страхе.
Да не наскучит мир в своем размахе...
Ты - этот мир, его ты создаешь... ⠀

~ Офелия - Виктория Дорн.

Недавно издательство eksmolive выпустило книгу Филиппы Грегори "Другая королева" с моим портретом на обложке 👑. Сей роман из цикла "Тюдоры" ведет повествование от лица трех главных героев - опальной королевы Марии Стюарт, и ее тюремщиков графа и графини Шрусбери. Пока Елизавета Тюдор стремится сохранить престол, собственную жизнь, вернуть относительный покой в стране , ее верный поданный Джордж Талбот, силясь выполнить поручение по сдерживанию Марии, теряет голову, честь и доблесть, влюбляясь в мятежницу. И Мария, и Елизавета желали властвовать в патриархальном Средневековье . Одна отказалась от женственности и возможности продолжить родовую линию, вторая напротив, использовала природное очарование с лихвой🔥. Разные методы, разные судьбы. Тем не менее противопоставление таких разных королев не может не захватывать. Именно поэтому данная обложка будет одной из моих любимых, ведь когда десять лет назад я наслаждалась тюдоровским циклом, то не могла бы грезить, что однажды увижу там собственный лик. 💘

Prerafaelitii, in engleza Pre-Raphaelites sau The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (Confreria Prerafaelita), au fost un grup de pictori, poeti si critici de arta englezi, fondat in 1848 de John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rosetti si William Holman Hunt, cu intentia de a reforma arta, refuzand ceea ce ei numeau reproducerea mecanica a operelor artistilor manieristi, care i-au succedat lui Rafael si Michelangelo.

Tinerii artisti (cel mai in varsta are 21 de ani!) reproseaza academismului epocii victoriene, printre altele, faptul ca exponentii lui recunosc o singura metoda in pictura: cea care deriva din arta lui Rafael. Aceasta metoda rigida si artificiala – in opinia lor – aseaza desenul deasupra culorii, lumina de zi a atelierelor deasupra luminii exterioare din aerul liber, iar pe marii clasici deasupra tuturor pictorilor contemporani moderni. Prerafaelitii se intereseaza de pictorii cei mai vechi, mai cu seama de maestrii care l-au precedat pe Rafael, de aici si denumirea lor.

In acelasi timp ei studiaza si creatiile artistilor contemporani, cum sunt William Turner, Théodore Géricault, Eugene Delacroix sau Jean Auguste Ingres, dar si ale coloristilor vechi ca Giorgione si Rubens. Isi aleg temele din domenii diverse: din literatura si mitologie, din Biblie, din evenimentele sociale, dar si din natura, neuitand nici imaginatia proprie. Eliberarea picturii de academism inseamna si respingerea idealismului academic, mentinand o legatura mai stransa si mai reala cu natura.

Nasterea Confreriei Prerafaelite

Millais si Hunt si-au exprimat deschis in fata colegilor lor de la Royal Academy parerea negativa asupra conventiilor la care discipolii si epigonii l-au redus pe Rafael. De aceea pana la urma ceilalti studenti i-au numit – in mod ironic – prerafaeliti, insa tinerii artisti si-au asumat porecla, asa cum vor face mai tarziu si impresionistii. Autorul ideii de a constitui o asociatie „secreta” a fost Dante Gabriel Rosetti, prieten al lui Hunt, fiu al unor emigranti politici italieni.

In septembrie 1848 – an revolutionar – ei infiinteaza „Confreria Prerafaeritilor” (The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood – P.R.B.), din care mai fac parte catolicul mistic James Collison, criticul de mai tarziu F.G. Stephens, sculptorul Thomas Wollner si William Michael Rosetti, fratele lui Dante Gabriel, care va fi secretarul asociatiei si va redacta programul grupului. Au cazut de acord sa nu semneze tablourile pictate, ci sa foloseasca toti initialele P.R.B., a caror semnificatie trebuia sa ramana secreta. Anticipand pe simbolisti, prerafaelitii au atras atentia asupra legaturii picturii cu cu alte arte, in special cu muzica si poezia.

Primele expozitii

Autorul primei lucrari prezentate public a fost Rosetti, in 1849, cu ocazia expozitiei „Free Exhibition” din Londra, cu o lucrare semnata P.R.B. In acelasi an apar noi tablouri, semnate cu aceleasi initiale misterioase, la expozitia Academiei Regale. Dupa o serie de expuneri, initialele sunt descifrate si atacarea „printului picturii” Rafael provoaca scandal. Criticii sunt socati si de abordarea prea realista – dupa parerea lor – a temelor sacre.

Unii observatori mai moderati subliniaza insa valorile artistice evidente ale tablourilor expuse. Singurul critic care se decide sa-i apere public este John Ruskin, cu multa influenta in lumea artistica. La inceputul lunii mai 1851, publica doua scrisori in ziarul „The Times”, in care – printre altele – scrie: ” … in masura experientei acumulate, (acesti pictori) vor fi capabili sa intemeieze in tara noastra o scoala artistica exceptionala pe care lumea nu a vazut-o de trei sute de ani.” Dupa aparitia acestor articole indraznete, opinia publica se schimba, iar operele Prerafaelitilor ajung repede sa fie elogiate.

Sfarsitul Confreriei Prerafaelite

La un an dupa interventia lui Ruskin, Prerafaelitii se bucura de succes nelimitat. Tabloul lui John Everett Millais, intitulat Ofelia (1852), are un rasunet urias. Paradoxal, insa, in anul urmator grupul se destrama. Motivele sunt multiple: in 1853 Millais este ales membru extraordinar la „Royal Academy”, si cu aceasta el revine la stilul conservator al academismului.

In acelasi an, Hunt intreprinde o calatorie in Egipt si Palestina si, la intoarcere, isi schimba fundamental principiile sale estetice. Dupa asemenea dezertari, Rosetti ramane singurul care continua tradittile prerafaelite. Le transmite lui Edward Burne-Jones, prin activitatea caruia estetica Prerafaelitilor influenteaza, intr-o anumita masura, Franta si intreaga Europa. In 1857, cu lucrarile lor se organizeaza la Londra o importanta expozitie. Dar Confreria nu mai exista deja de trei ani…
