View Full Version : The Preraphaelite School of Art

Preraphaelite school of art (mid-late 19th century to early 20th) -- Some of the last great Western art, right before our cultural institutions were infiltrated, perverted, and destroyed.

No word can express the beauty displayed in these works of art. They are simply exquisite, thank you for sharing them with us. For me, you have brought a little brightness to a day that has been some what gloom, I thank you for that.

Alas, this is the art of a much less cynical age than this. Even were there artists possessed of such consummate technique today, such works could not be created now. The preRaphaelites have been vilified for sentimentality. But, sentimentality is insincerity and I deny that the emotions expressed in these masterpieces are insincere. They belong to an age which still accepted and believed in heroism and chivalry, an age said to have died in the dirty realities of World War One. If so, something precious and irreplaceable died and we are impoverished without it.

Pre-raphaelite art was REAL ART that reflected the ideals of Beauty and Strength. Much abstract art and such is perverse and is right to be labeled "degenerate art". The Raphaelites reflect the Nordic soul in all it's splendour. One should also check out "Hylas and the Nymphs" by JW Waterhouse, my sig is by said artist and depicts Circe. <img

I suppose John William Waterhouse was more of a modern Pre-Raphaelite, but here are a few of my favorite Waterhouse paintings:

The Awakening of Adonis, 1899

Echo and Narcissus, 1903

Hylas and the Nymphs, 1896
