With its literary and mystical associations, Britain's Pre-Raphaelite movement was never certain to catch on stateside, but an entire generation of American artists drew inspiration from it and made it their own. Following critic John Ruskin's dictum to depict nature close up and with great fidelity, many members of the group were also abolitionists, creating works with a subtle political message. While documenting a rich cultural exchange, this generously illustrated companion to the National Gallery of Art exhibition includes art by Fidelia Bridges, Henry and Thomas Charles Farrer, and William Trost Richards.
