Marcia Werner challenges several long-standing beliefs about the Pre-Raphaelite painting movement, often characterized as a disparate group who pursued divergent, even antithetical goals. Werner argues that the Pre-Raphaelites developed and shared an artistic philosophy comprehensive enough to embrace all of their differences. She reconstructs this credo through careful study of writings by Pre-Raphaelite artists.

' ... this is a fascinating book, which is argued very convincingly because it is so carefully based on empirical research and primary sources ... Werner's arguments will probably stand the test of time.' The Art Book 'It is already proving a stimulating addition to my students bibliographies and must become essential reading for scholars, students and lay enthusiasts alike - anyone interested in the thought, art or culture of nineteenth-century Europe.'
