In the Victorian era, England was swept along by the Industrial Revolution and the Pre-Raphaelite fold, William Morris, and the Arts and Crafts movement aspired to return to traditional values. Wishing to resurrect the pure and noble forms of the Italian Renaissance, a group of painters including John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and Edward Burne-Jones, favoured Realism and Biblical themes. This work, with its informed text and rich illustrations, enthusiastically describes this singular movement which provided the inspiration for Art Nouveau and Symbolism.
Robert de la Sizeranne was an art historian. The subjects of his studies essentially relate to 19th-century English Painting, the Italian Renaissance, and Ruskin’s aesthetics, as well as to photography.
