You can recognize the Pre-Raphaelites works among all types of art. In the Victorian era, in the middle of the XIX century, a group of artists made their own revolution in the world of painting. Refusing the canons provided by the Royal Academy of Arts, the painters decided to return to the models which were considered truly indisputable. So they began to work in the same way as the Italian painters of the Early Renaissance, "before Raphael and Michelangelo."

But these were only blind samples of the beginning of the XV century. The main Pre-Raphaelites tendencies were formed soon. It glorified artists of the Pre-Raphaelites Brotherhood in the second half of the XIX century, and also influenced the further development of the art and the literature. Mythology of the subjects, the cult of the beauty and artistic genius, aesthetics and stylization of forms have become the calling card of this art style.

John William Waterhouse was one of the main artists of that period. Although he hasn’t been the founder of this style, his paintings belong exactly to the Pre-Raphaelitism. It is easy to recognize the brush, the muted shades and the plots on mythological, literary and historical themes. In his works, the drama of the moment is emphasized by the composition, and the charm of thoughtful, tender and young models is combined with pictorial techniques.
