Pre-Raphaelite, Most Beautiful Women (Once) Alive

Most of you enjoyed Rossetti's art work. This time I have put together assemblages of all of the Pre-Raphaelites' work. Underneath each is the name of the artist and then at the end is a group image of the artists with their house and school. This work is very popular present day even though this movement dates back to 1848, its founding. You've seen it on T-shirts, tote bags, key rings, book covers, posters and so forth. Exhibitions of this work are popular as well.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti

John William Waterhouse

John Everett Millais

This was  Millais's parents' house on Gower Street, in London in 1848, where the art students founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood art movement. They were art students at the school to the below left. Today they would be going to the building on the right.
