Reading the Pre-Raphaelites: Revised Edition
By Tim Barringer
Reading the Pre-Raphaelites draws on an imaginative selection of paintings, drawings, and photographs to suggest that the dynamic energy of Pre-Raphaelitism arose out of the paradoxes at its heart. Past and present, historicism and modernity, symbolism and realism, as well as the tensions between city and country, men and women, worker and capitalist, colonizer and colonized all make appearances within Pre-Raphaelite art. This book is available at the Museum Store.
