(An artistic movement)

Dates: 1848-1910

English painters who shared the goal of the German Nazarenes to create an art deprived from the Greco-Roman classicism which was - according to them - prevalent since Raphael, hence their name. So they used themes taken from British history, such as King Arthur legends and Shakespeare's plays, which they illustrated with vibrant colours and melancholy.
