In mid-nineteenth century Victorian England, some young rebellious artists created the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in Protected content the aim of renewing English painting which they considered to be in decline due to the excessively formal and severe rules imposed by the Royal Academy.
§ John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, founders of the Brotherhood, rejected the conventions of great Italian Renaissance art, primarily Raphael, promoting a return to the purity of medieval art. This movement, however, was not just a mere reactionary return to the styles of the past, but rather a visionary project that transformed the works of these artists into something decidedly modern.
