The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was an artistic movement born in Britain during the second half of the nineteenth century whose ideology was to bring back to life the costumes of an imaginary and nostalgic past ascribable before the period in which Raffaello Sanzio lived. The contents of their painting range from medieval themes, nationalistic themes, biblical themes, social themes and themes from Shakespeare's works. The pictorial style is inspired by Renaissance and medieval painting in which the representation of sensual and elegant female subjects with elaborate drapes often prevails. The contents of their works generally have allegorical and symbolic references. Among the most influential artists we mention: John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Morris, John William Godward, Lawrence Alma-Tadema, John William Waterhouse and many others.
