Pre-Raphaelites

Not just you BB, anyone who cares to comment on the Pre-Raphaelites, this is a discussion on famous artists. So, how about Bourne-Jones folks? How about Dante Ga
iel Rossetti? William Morris?

That was a good read on the pre-raphaelites (thanks Wikipedia! and Carmelo, of course), a movement I didn't know much about. Of the artists listed I liked Morris' and Millais' art most. Millais seemed to be the most talented, he was a very good portraitist. In "Ophelia" he did an amazing job painting the floating body and the detail of the background is unbelievable. Too much detail in fact, it's competing with the figure. All in all it doesn't seem to be a very original movement.
