Présentation de l'éditeur

'Genuine ideas to express'. Sometimes considered the first avant-garde art movement, the Pre-Raphaelites rejected their era's dominant artistic theories for what they saw as a more spiritual, naturalistic and intensely personal approach. Fascinated by the romantic aspects of medieval culture and the vivid, jewel-like colors of Quattrocento art, the movement abhored the Classical poses and composition of Raphael and those influenced by him - hence the group's name - and the influence of Sir Joshua Reynolds. Founded in 1848 by William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the original Pre-Raphaelites were joined by William Michael Rossetti, James Collinson, Frederic George Stephens and Thomas Woolner to form a seven-member 'brotherhood'. Its influence on many later British artists was extensive, and Rossetti's work is now seen as a precursor of the wider European Symbolist movement. This book examines the group's emergence, development, influence, and subsequent demise. Each book in "TASCHEN's Basic Genre Series" features: a detailed introduction with approximately 35 photographs, plus a timeline of the most important events (political, cultural, scientific, etc.) that took place during the time period; a selection of the most important works of the epoch - each is presented on a 2-page spread with a full-page image and, on the facing page, a description/interpretation of the work and brief biography of the artist as well as additional information such as a reference work, portrait of the artist, and/or citations.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Pre-Raphaelite Art 101 12 février 2013

Heather Birchall is a refreshingly direct and yet scholarly writer, which makes this one of the best Taschen surveys. The 25-page introduction is consistently informative and relevant and avoids digressing into marginal topics. Birchall has a knack for writing coherently and without that pretentious verbiage and esoteric theory that plagues so much writing on art. Yet Birchall delves into her subject with scholarly expertise as well, citing secondary sources on every page.

The introduction is a pleasure to read because it gets at the heart of the Pre-Raphaelites and their world. Birchall covers the formation and eventual decline of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (PRB) without wading through too much social and political discussion. There are extensive sections on the PRB's two greatest figures, Rossetti and Burne-Jones, and much is said about their champion, John Ruskin. The remaining content of the book consists of 35 reproductions each accompanied by a single-page blurb about the featured artist and work. Unlike some other Taschen surveys, Birchall offers thoughtful interpretations and interesting historical nuggets, which makes these mini-essays worth reading.

Like other schools, the Pre-Raphaelites were a relatively small group of artists. As such, several paintings by a single PRB figurehead are often spotlighted in this book. For example, of the 35 reproductions here, six are by Burne-Jones, five by Rossetti, five by Millais, four by Hunt, and three by Brown. Other works here stem from PRB disciples and second-tier imitators: Walter Deverell, John Inchbold, Frederick Sandys, Evelyn de Morgan, and Henry Wallis. What struck me as peculiar is the conspicuous absence of John William Waterhouse, who may not have been active during its halcyon days, but exemplifies the PRB as much as Burne-Jones. I cannot tell why Waterhouse was snubbed when a mediocre work by Simeon Solomon and a decidedly obscure painting by Eleanor Fortescue-Brickdale were included.

Bottom line: This is a superb introduction to the Pre-Raphaelites, written in an accessible manner without sacrificing substance. Birchall is perhaps the most satisfying writer who has yet contributed to the Taschen genre series. Devotees of Pre-Raphaelite art may not be as impressed, but the book is an excellent primer. For deeper exploration, consider these coffee table books: The Pre-Raphaelites and Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Art and Design.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Really substantial error! 2 septembre 2013
Par eicats - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I just discovered a really substantial error in this book: in the essay on Millais' Ophelia painting, the text says that Gertrude was Ophelia's mother. Yikes! This makes me worry about what other errors there might be in the book.
