The Later Pre-Raphaelites: Continued

Ref: C3679846

The late Pre-Raphaelites provided late Victorian society with the means to explore, imaginatively, the relationship between the sexes in a way that liberated them from the constraints of their time. The content of this course will comprise - William Morris and Burne-Jones' 'Dream of an Earthly Paradise' Female Pre-Raphaelite painters Ladies of Shallot La Belle Dames Sans Merci Themes such as 'The Knight and the Lady'

Course aim

Later Pre-Raphaelitism's engagement with contemporary concerns functioned largely by projecting the protagonists depicted into a romanticised world; by this means later Victorian preoccupations could be outplayed imaginatively.
