Topics in the History of Photography – Pre-Raphaelite Painting and Photography

Back to "Spring 2017" courses

Photography and painting after the founding of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848 entered into a complicated dialogue in which the limits of the real and the fantastic were renegotiated. By looking at the writings of John Ruskin, Wilkie Collins, and Tennyson; the paintings of Rossetti, Holman Hunt, and Millais; and the photographs of Julia Margaret Cameron, Oscar Rejlander, and Lewis Carroll, (among others), we will consider topics such as the Oxford movement and religious art; machinery, labor and poverty; the Great Exhibition of 1851; Victorian childhood; and the feminine ideal.
