1. You have to love the Brotherhood!! Absolutely true – painting and poetry were sister arts in many eras. But Pre-Raphaelite paintings were PARTICULARLY inspired by literature. In fact I would say the paintings followed the literature, rather than the literature was written to accompany paintings.

  3. Yes, absolutely. They had a very literary approach even when not literally painting from literature. I’m very excited about getting stuck into it!
