The paintings of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood are widely known and loved, but this book - newly available in paperback - presents a comprehensive survey of the intimate world of the Pre-Raphaelites' drawings. Works by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais are set beside those of their followers Edward Burne-Jones, William Morris and Ford Madox Brown, as well as lesser-known figures such as James Collinson and Frederick Sandys. Copiously illustrated with Pre-Raphaelite drawings from public and private collections around the UK, the book features an illuminating text by the renowned art historian Colin Cruise, offering a fresh and intimate perspective on this much-loved group of artists. 'Highly readable ... a fresh and intimate look at a compelling subject' - Good Book Guide 'A lasting contribution to the study of Pre-Raphaelite drawings' - The Burlington Magazine 'Packed with illustrations and an illuminating text' - RA Magazine 'A totally rewarding book in every way: it is a joy to look at and a delight to read' - Artist
