The Pre-Raphaelites brought about a revolution in depicting landscape that was arguably as radical as anything achieved by their near contemporaries, the Impressionists. Deeply rooted as they were in both scientific and religious culture and inspired by the theories of John Ruskin, the Pre-Raphaelites experienced an exhilarating passion for the natural world that suffuses their works and animates their vision. This authoritative and lavishly illustrated book, the first study of landscape in Pre-Raphaelite painting for many years, highlights an often overlooked aspect of the movement. Among the artists featured are John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, Ford Madox Brown, John Brett, George Price Boyce, William Davis, and Daniel Alexander Williamson.
