Art of the Pre-Raphaelites by Elizabeth Prettejohn

Book Description

In 1848, seven inexperienced young artists banded together to form the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, one of the first and most distinctive group movements in modern art. A century and a half later, their art still has the power to shock, as well as fascinate its audiences. Through the detailed analysis of the materials, techniques, and working pratices of the artists, this lavishly illustrated book examines how Pre-Raphaelite pictures compel the viewer to see more, and more vividly, than traditional painting styles. This intensity of observation reinforces the distinctive subject matter of the pictures: the natural world and the human model, gender identities and sexual relationships, debates on politics, science and religion. Elizabeth Prettejohn is widely acknowledged to be a leading authority on the Pre-Raphaelites, and "The Art of the Pre-Raphaelites" is seen as a classic introduction to the movement. Outstandingly successful as a hardback, it is now published in a new, affordable format by public demand.

Pater the Classicist by Elizabeth Prettejohn Pater the Classicist, Hardback (March 2017)

Lawrence Alma-Tadema by Elizabeth Prettejohn Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Hardback (October 2016)

This important re-evaluation of the Dutch- born painter Lawrence Alma-Tadema traces his personal and artistic journey towards international fame and success in London and investigates how this exceptionally creative artist used his own houses and studios as laboratories to produce vivid paintings of life in ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt.

Modernity of Ancient Sculpture by Elizabeth Prettejohn Modernity of Ancient Sculpture, Paperback (July 2012)

What can modern art have to do with ancient sculpture? Surely the excitement of modern art lies in its repudiation of classical example? Elizabeth Prettejohn's important and revisionist new book argues otherwise: that ancient sculpture and modern art have been in constant dialogue since Johann Joachim Winckelmann invented art history.
