Discorsotenutopressoil Social Science Congress a Manchester nel 1879 da Sir Coutts Lindsay, fondatoredella Grosvenor Gallery :

“Their creed involved the denial of everything the English school had hitherto held sacred. They accepted Nature alone to be their future guide and Bible, and in it they beheld the condemnation of all art except the earliest art of Italy…. These men threw themselves passionately into the study of the natural, and had implicit faith in the all-teaching of Nature without assistance from the stores of past knowledge. “


William Michael Rossetti, D.G.Rossetti, His Family Letters, 1895:

  • To have genuine ideas to express;
  • To study nature attentively, so as to know how to express them;
  • To sympathize with what is direct and serious and heartfelt in previous art, to the exclusion of what is conventional and self-parading and learned by rote;
  • And most indispensable of all, to produce thoroughly good pictures and statues.

  • They hated the lack of ideas in art, and the lack of character; the silliness and vacuity which belong to the one, the flimsiness and make-believe which result from the other. They hated those forms of execution which are merely smooth and prettyish, and those which, pretending to mastery, are nothing better than slovenly and slapdash, or what the P.R.B.\'s called "sloshy." Still more did they hate the notion that each artist should obey his own individual impulse, act upon his own perception and study of Nature,(… ); but that, instead of all this, he should try to be "like somebody else," imitating some extant style and manner, and applying the cut-and-dry rules enunciated by A from the practice of B or C. They determined to do the exact contrary. The temper of these striplings, after some years of the current academic training, was the temper of rebels: they meant revolt, and produced revolution.

William Holman Hunt, The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, 1905

Pre-Raphaelitism is not Pre-Raphaelism. Raphael in his prime was an artist of the most independent and daring course as to convention. (…) What had cost Perugino, FraBartolomeo, Leonardo da Vinci, and Michael Angelo more years to develop than Raphael lived, he seized in a day—nay, in one single inspection of his precursors\' achievements. His rapacity was atoned for by his never-stinted acknowledgments of his indebtedness, and by the reverent and philosophical use in his work of the prizes that he seized. (…)


What he gained (…) was the power to prove that the human figure is of nobler proportion, and has grander capabilities of action than is seen by the casual eye, and that for large work, expression must mainly depend upon movement of the body. (…) There is no need here to trace any failure in Raphael\'s career; but the prodigality of his productiveness, and his training of many assistants, compelled him to lay down rules and manners of work; and his followers, even before they were left alone, accentuated his poses into postures.

  • They caricatured the turns of his heads and the lines of his limbs, designed their figures in patterns; and they built up their groups into formal pyramids. The master himself, at the last, in the “Transfiguration,” was not exempt from such deadly artificialities and conventions. The artists who thus servilely travestied the failings of this prince of painters were Raphaelites, and although certain rare geniuses since then have dared to burst the fetters forged in Raphael\'s decline, I now repeat, what we said in the days of our youth, that the traditions that went on through the Bolognese Academy (which were introduced at the foundation of all later Schools and enforced by Le Brun, Du Fresnoy, Raphael Mengs, and Sir Joshua Reynolds, to our own time) were lethal in their influence, tending to stifle the breath of design. The name Pre-Raphaelite excludes the influence of such corrupters of perfection, even though Raphael, by reason of certain of his works, be in the list, while it accepts that of his more sincere forerunners.

“ It is simply fuller Nature we want. Revivalism, whether it is of classicism or medievalism, is seeking after dry bones�”.

Da un colloquio tra Hunt e Rossetti


Raymond Watkinson, Pre-Raphaelite Art and Design, 1970.

“That choiche of colours, blue-green, purples, violet, (…) came to be one of the marks of much Preraphaelite painting; colourwhich, however naturalistically rendered, was selective, aimed at producing certain emotional effects”.
