The Love School: The Pre-Raphaelites and Their World
Starting as an anti-establishment secret society, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood soon set the Victorian art world on fire. From the early jewel-like pictures of the ‘truth-to-nature’ style, developed a dreamy, Medieval art, which had a profound effect not only on the English, but also the continental and American Avante-Garde. In this lavishly-illustrated course, Adrian Sumner looks more closely at John Millais, William Holman-Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and his inspired pupil Edward Burne-Jones, and the waves of influence they exerted on William Morris the Arts and Crafts Movement, the Aesthetic Movement, Symbolism, Decadence and the period style of Art Nouveau. A graduate of Liverpool College of Art, Adrian has worked as an Illustrator, Arts Development Officer and Lecturer in various academic and public institutions including NADFAS. Latterly he was Arts Development Officer for Cheshire West and Chester Council, with a particular interest in Visual Arts. Currently he divides his time between organising study weekends in Britain, cruise ship lectures, painting and exhibiting, and delivering study days and single lectures in Britain and abroad.
