The Illustrated Letters and Diaries of the Pre-Raphaelites

by Jan Marsh



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
An engrossing look at the life, love, and work of one of the first modern movements in British art: the Pre-Raphaelites.
The Pre-Raphaelites were a true avant-garde, supremely talented artists ahead of their time. Using their own letters, diaries, poems, and paintings, this handsome illustrated history captures their linked lives and loves in late Victorian Britain. It features the finest painters, writers, critics, and designers of the age, including Ford Madox Brown; Edward Burne-Jones; Fanny Comforth; John Everett Millais; William and Janey Morris; Christina, Dante Gabriel, and William Rossetti; John Ruskin; William Bell Scott; and Lizzie Siddal.

Jan Marsh is the author of an acclaimed biography of Christina Rossetti, as well as Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood (Interlink Publishing) and The Legend of Elizabeth Siddal (Quartet Books). She is also the author of a biography of Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
