For any reader who just can't get enough info about that astounding 19th-century art movement, here's another entertaining, accurate, and informative book by Pre-Raphaelite expert Jan Marsh.
This book is replete with interesting tidbits about about the greatest artists of the movement, including William Holman Hunt, Edward Burne-Jones, and of course, Dante Gabriel Rossetti. It provides just enough historical information to give some insight into the artists' inspiration, but steers clear of unnecessary biographical information and opinionated fluff.
Criticism? Well, yes. This book is not as thoroughly researched as the author's biographies of Elizabeth Siddal and Christina Rossetti, nor is it as lush with paintings and photographs as Marsh's "Pre-Raphaelite Women". It probably a bit too in-depth to be of much interest to those readers with no familiarity with the works of the Pre-Raphaelites. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this, and the other books of Jan Marsh, to anyone wishing to find out more about the Pre-Raphaelites.
