EXCLUSIVE WEBINAR | “Reframing the Renaissance: The Pre-Raphaelites”
Presented by Dr. Meghan Callahan
with Additional Commentary by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero
In the 1850s, a group of artists including William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and John Everett Millais declared themselves the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. The art critic John Ruskin promoted their desire to return English painting to the pure Italian style prior to developments by Michelangelo and Raphael. Inspired by the literature of Boccaccio and Dante, the Brothers created fantasy worlds in their paintings and poetry.
This talk will examine early Renaissance sources for the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood, and delve into the meanings within their paintings.
The webinar will include a 45-minute lecture followed by 15-minutes of Q&A.
