Pre-Raphaelites and Followers

The Russell-Cotes collection combines the well known glory of Rossetti and Arthur Hughes with lesser known artists such as Prynne and Stanhope. It shows the range of subjects covered by the artists from the seductresses of myth and legend to the wonder of the English Countryside and covers high art to book illustration. From Blessed Virgins and Lily Maids to Witches and Evil Queens, Sea-Sprites, Angels and Goddesses, it shows the power of the woman in Pre-Raphaelite art. Watch a short film by Historian Kirsty Stonell Walker on the Russell-Cotes and Pre-Raphaelites. Click on an artwork to find out more.
