THE BRITISH PRE-RAPHAELITE ILLUSTRATORS.
Suriano, Gregory R.
In the second half of the 19th century, a group of artists burst onto the British art scene and created a graphic revolution. Collectively known as the Pre-Raphaelites, their influence on the Victorian Age was incalculable. In this unique work, Gregory Suriano, a Pre-Raphaelite collector with a Master's Degree in Art History from Rutgers University, has rewritten and expanded this second edition with 75 rare, additional engravings not in the 2000 first edition.
The work is divided into three parts. Part One features a short, intriguing biography and works of each of the major Pre-Raphaelites. Part Two features biographies and works of their Associates. Part Three includes artists who were greatly influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites. All artists are critically discussed. The appendix has an extensive catalogue of their works and a selected bibliography and references plus index.
This work makes an excellent reference volume and introduction into the unique world of the Pre-Raphaelite artists. Illustrated with over 525 black-and-white images.
