With my all-consuming passion for Pre-Raphaelite art, I am thrilled to see so many Pre-Raph inspired sites online right now. The Pre-Raphaelites have been dismissed for so many years. I think that through the internet and the opportunity for people of similar interests to connect with each other, Pre-Raphaelite art is undergoing a much deserved resurgence.
ArtMagick, perhaps the oldest site online devoted to Pre-Raphaelite and Symbolist art has recently undergone a beautiful redesign with some new features.
Introducing a new Pre-Raphaelite blog, The Beautiful Necessity! Great title. I look forward to following this blog. From the description: “Have nothing in your homes that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful” –William Morris
A blog devoted to the Pre-Raphaelite and the Arts and Crafts movements, and their influence on today.
I haven’t been able to write much this week…the flu has run rampant through my household! But thankfully, Meggie at Earthly Paradise has created some wonderful diversions from my physical woes: Sir Edward Burne-Jones’ Briar Rose/Sleeping Beauty Paintings, News from Nowhere, and (my favorite) William Holman Hunt’s Lady of Shalott.
