The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood: A Captivating Journey into Artistic Romanticism Step into the enchanting world of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, a group of visionary artists who sought to revive the purity and intensity of medieval art. Circe Invidiosa, painted by John William Waterhouse in 1892, mesmerizes with its bewitching portrayal of the sorceress from Greek mythology. In 1899, William John Wainwright's Parable Of The Wise And Foolish Virgins captivates viewers with its allegorical depiction of virtue and folly. This thought-provoking piece invites contemplation on human nature and moral choices. John Everett Millais' My First Sermon (1863) and My Second Sermon (1864) offer glimpses into Victorian society through innocent yet profound portrayals of children engaged in religious contemplation. These iconic works evoke a sense of innocence lost amidst societal pressures. Waterhouse's A Mermaid transports us to an ethereal underwater realm where myth meets reality. The artist skillfully captures both beauty and danger as we witness this mythical creature luring sailors to their demise. Crenaia, the nymph of Dargle, immortalized by unknown hands, embodies the allure and mystery associated with nymphs in ancient folklore. Her delicate features transport us to a world steeped in magic and wonder. Narcissus and Echo tell a tragic tale through Millais' brushstrokes - Narcissus enamored by his own reflection while Echo pines away for unrequited love. This poignant representation explores themes such as vanity, obsession, and unattainable desire. Sir Isumbras at the Ford (1857) showcases Millais' mastery at capturing historical narratives filled with chivalry and heroism. This evocative painting transports us back to medieval times when knights embarked on daring quests for honor and glory.
