A Major Review of Waking Dreams: The Art of the Pre-Raphaelites from the Delaware Art Museum

Tuesday, June 19, 2007

Art Services International has assembled the biggest American showing of Pre-Raphaelite work in recent memory from the collection of the Delaware Art Museum.   Bend Weekly, a newspaper from Bend, Oregon, published a major review of Waking Dreams: The Art of the Pre-Raphaelites from the Delaware Art Museum at its final venue, the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park.

The Pre-Raphaelites "materialized in 1848 when seven British artists and writers formed what they called a brotherhood - P.R.B. for short. In their notion of a collective vision and purpose that cut across art forms, they foreshadowed the shape of 20th century avant-garde movements such as futurism or surrealism, though with one important difference: Their rebellion against conventions looked backward instead of forward."
