‘Definitely to be recommended. It is lively, free of cant, highly intelligent and well-written; above all it is stimulating’ – The Burlington Magazine
'Amply and conveniently illustrated' - Choice

Virtually every Pre-Raphaelite painting is discussed in detail and illustrated here, including works by the best known - Holman Hunt, Rossetti and Millais - and the movement’s many minor talents.


Effie Gray: an original screenplay by Emma Thompson dramatises the flawed marriage of Effie Gray to John Ruskin. The film is set when the Pre-Raphaelites were being championed by Ruskin. It includes the introduction of John Everett Millais to ‘Effie’ as he paints the famous portrait of Ruskin in the Scottish Highlands. The film includes ravishing photography of Millais’ Ophelia, filmed at Tate, with scenes in London, Venice and Scotland.
