Pre-order. Anticipated delivery June 2018.

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco’s series of pictorials feature text and image highlights from our exhibitions and collections. The compact size makes these editions ideal for travelers. At only 40 pages, they are the perfect keepsake to commemorate your experience, or to read in advance of your visit. Each pictorial contains roughly 30 full-color artwork images, along with a curatorial essay and historical background on the specific artists and works represented.

In 1848, seven British artists formed a secret alliance and declared themselves the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Including William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, these young men rebelled against the style of art emulated by many of their nineteenth-century contemporaries, praising instead the works of earlier artists who preceded the Renaissance master Raphael and his followers—the “Raphaelites.” Known today for their jewellike palettes, finely detailed renderings, and highly symbolic subjects, the Pre-Raphaelites admired poetry and literature; early Italian and early Netherlandish art; tempera painting techniques; tapestries, stained glass, and other decorative arts; and, eventually, even works from sixteenth-century Venetian artistswho could be construed as “Post-Raphaelites.” 

Softcover, 40 pages.
