In 1848, a group of idealistic young British artists formed the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Contrary to what their moniker implied, the lives and works of the Pre-Raphaelites were indelibly shaped and formed by the women in their circle.
The PreRaphaeliteSisterhood.com site aims to elevate and discuss female Pre-Raphaelite painters, poets, and models and the world they lived in. Join us on a rollicking ride and an ebullient exploration of 19th century art – and what it reveals about our culture today.
Everyone is welcome here. If you are curious about the women of the Pre-Raphaelite era, please consider yourself part of our present-day Pre-Raphaelite sisterhood!
