Fascinated via the romantic points of medieval tradition and the bright, jewel-like colours of Quattrocento paintings, the circulate abhored the Classical poses and composition of Raphael and people inspired by means of him—hence the group’s name—and the effect of Sir Joshua Reynolds.

based in 1848 by way of William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the unique Pre-Raphaelites have been joined via William Michael Rossetti, James Collinson, Frederic George Stephens and Thomas Woolner to shape a seven-member "brotherhood".
