The work of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and their followers is enduringly popular and correspondingly familiar to a wide public. Works by women artists within the Pre-Raphaelite style have, however, largely been forgotten and ignored in the history of the movement. This book, published to accompany an exhibition in Manchester, England, brings together paintings, drawings, photographs, and other works that women contributed to the Pre-Raphaelite movement. Many are reproduced and documented here for the first time. Spanning three generations from the 1840s to the early 1900s, the artists include Barbara Bodichon, Anna Howitt, Rosa Brett, Anna Blunden, Jane Benham Hay, Joanna Boyce, Elizabeth Siddal, Rebecca Solomon, Emma Sandys, Julia Margaret Cameron, Lucy and Catherine Madox Brown, Marie Spartali Stillman, Maria Zambaco, Francesca Alexander, Evelyn De Morgan, Kate Bunce, Marianne Stokes, Christina Herringham, and Eleanor Fortescue Brickdale. Their works demonstrate that Pre-Raphaelitism is a broader historical movement than has previously been recognized and that women were active in all its phases. Their re-inclusion in Pre-Raphaelite history will redefine its scope, concerns, and achievements, as well as restore a wealth of neglected works to public attention.

From Library Journal:

When the Pre-Raphaelites broke upon the British art world in 1849, they became a sensation. Much has been written about this groupAWilliam Morris, Edward Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rosetti, and othersAbut this work, which serves as a catalog for a 1998 traveling exhibition in Britain, is the first attempt to look at the role of women in the movement. Marsh and Nunn, both specialists in the Pre-Raphaelites and Victorian women artists, look at the paintings, drawings, and photography of 20 women, ranging from Elizabeth Siddal to Julia Margaret Cameron. Like their male counterparts, they focused on medieval themesAwomen in long, elaborately designed gowns and flowing hair or scenes from legends. But they also experimented with other subjectsAbaby portraits, children playing, saints. Featured here are 231 richly detailed illustrations, 65 in color, many reproduced and documented for the first time, giving these neglected artists the attention they deserve. The work also includes brief biographies, photos of the artists, and a catalog of individual works. Highly recommended for art and women's studies collections.AJoseph C. Hewgley, Nashville P.L.
