As I have finally finished my exams with success and so I am officially on holiday, some mornings ago I went to see the Pre-Raphaelite exhibition at Palazzo Chiablese. The Pre-Raphaelites were a group of english painters, poets and critics, founded in 1848 by William Hunt, John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. The group's intention was to reform art by rejecting what it considered the mechanistic approach first adopted by Mannerist artists who succeeded Raffaello and Michelangelo. Its members accepted the concept of history painting and mimesis, imitation of nature, as central to the purpose of art. The Pre-Raphaelite defined themselves as a reform movement, created a distinct name for their form of art, and published a periodical, the Germ, to promote their ideas. I really loved the exhibition because It allowed me to see some of my favorite paintings such as Ofelia from John Everett Millais, and Lady Lilith from Dante Rossetti.
