|The Pre-Raphaelite Circle
by Jan Marsh
Published by National Portrait Gallery, 2006
Hardcover, 128 pages
Renowned as much for their bohemian lifestyle as for their art, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood brought notoriety to British Painting in the nineteenth century.
This book describes and illustrates the lives of the Pre-Raphaelites, revealing both their social relationships and artistic ideals.
Jan Marsh's compelling account of these remarkable men and women uses their contemporary portraits to explore not only individual personalities, but also the artistic force that bound the circle together.
