The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood were a group of English artists, poets, and art critics who were influential in the development of modern art. The members of the group included William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and William Michael Rossetti. Their work is renowned for its unique style, and many of their works are included in museums around the world. The artists and writers of the group were inspired by the natural beauty of the English countryside and their love of natural landscapes.

While the Brotherhood was a group of visionaries, they were not particularly productive. They produced very little of note, but the style they espoused was largely influential. By the late nineteenth century, the style had become the norm in English painting. While there are a number of distinct schools of Pre-Raphaelite art, two main streams emerged: the Hunt and Millais stream and the Rossetti stream. The first group, known as the Golden Dawn, was influenced by Raphael and the Dutch School. The latter stream embraced the naturalist aesthetic, while the second focused on the decorative arts.

The Brotherhood's art movement was inspired by ancient art and culture. They aimed to restore the purity of art. Their art was inspired by medieval and Renaissance styles, and the work of the brothers was considered superior to that of later generations. In addition to their famous paintings, the Pre-Raphaelites also influenced architecture and decorative arts.

Some of their works featured important female characters from literature and other works. They often used real-models to represent the women.
