The Art of Illustration: Millais, the Pre-Raphaelites and the Idyllic School

Dr Paul Goldman

The final and 'most indispensable' founding principle of the Pre-Raphaelites was: "to produce thoroughly good pictures and statues". Derided by the establishment (including Charles Dickens) for producing art which was ugly and backward, the work of John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Holman Hunt have since come to take its place as perhaps the most important point of British art in the 19th Century.
This lecture looks in particular at the illustrative art of these movements and artists.
