PreRaphaelite Brotherhood Screensaver, 465 Paintings by over 50 Artists. Contrary to the notion the name this movement might give, the PreRaphaelite Brotherhood came to prominence during the late 1800's in England.
The group's intention was to reform art by rejecting what they considered to be the mechanistic approach first adopted by the Mannerist artists who inherited from Raphael and Michelangelo.
They believed that this style of elegant classical posing and composition of the late Renaissance and Mannerism had been a corrupting influence on Academic art.
They wanted to return to the abundant detail, intense colors, and complex compositions similar to the early Renaissance but infused into their own new paintings which often have themes and overtones from popular Arthurian legend.
This collection includes paintings by Edward Burne Jones, William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John William Waterhouse, and many more.
