The Pre-Raphaelite movement emerged in the mid-1800s as an attempt to
return art to its traditional styles and themes. While the Pre-Raphaelites did draw stylistically
on Renaissance models, the movement soon developed its own unique style and philosophy,
producing art which was traditional, yet uniquely new. An artistic Renaissance for its time.
The most prominent Pre-Raphaelites were Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Holman Hunt,
Edward Burne Jones, John Everett Millais and Lord Leighton. The movement also became closely
associated with the Arts and Crafts movement which arose in the same period, largely linked together
by the collaborations of Arts & Crafts designer William Morris and Edward Burne Jones.
The style of the Pre-Raphaelites was characterized by an interest in classical and
legendary themes, fascination with architectural elements and realistic drapery, and the use of
models who fit a particular style and appearance, usually with thick, curly hair and voluptuous
figures. The end result was a style which was realistic, yet fantastical, and ultimately had a strong
influence on artists throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries, especially illustrators like
William Russell Flint and Eleanor Brickdale.
Our Pre-Raphaelite collection features selected images from the most prominent
artists of the movement in high-resolution suitable for use in print. It includes some of the
most well-recognized paintings like Millais' The Knight Errant and Ophelia, Rossetti's
Beata Beatrix, Hunts Triumph of the Innocents and Burne-Jones portrait of Sidonia
von Bork. This collection is unique, because the originals to these paintings are controlled by
galleries which will not allow them to be reproduced. Our versions are taken from antique
prints which they don't control, so we can license you the right to use them within some simple
limitations. As with all of our collections, the images are licensed
to you for reprint or inclusion in other publications so long as you are not primarily reselling just the
