The story of a group of artists attempting to establish a new kind of art.


In 1848 a group of young artists formed a secret society called ‘The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood’.  They wanted to establish a new kind of art based on serious subject matter and the painstaking study of nature.  As Holman Hunt said ‘………our talk is deepest treason against our betters’.  As proof of this, their early work in a new style provoked hostile criticism.
