Art History Talk: The first modern British artists? The radical and scandalous Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood
The Pre-Raphaelites are considered to be the first â€˜modernâ€™ British artists. They looked back to the past, and yet their work was incredibly forward thinking. The avant-garde group of Royal Academy students rebelled against everything they had been taught; rejecting Raphael and instead turning to early Renaissance and Flemish art for inspiration. They developed new and innovative ways of working; painting outdoors using bright, modern colours, and with a distinctive attention to detail. The groupâ€™s personal lives were equally as fascinating; full of scandals, opiate overdoses and affairs.
