Publisher Description

William Holman Hunt wants his own revolution. In the year 1848 Europe erupts in turmoil, but Hunt is an art student, with many dreams and limited funds, in a London where revolution is just not done-especially one against the art establishment.

Hunt, along with six friends and fellow students-including the prodigy John Everett Millais and the artist-poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti-proclaim themselves the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (PRB). They plan to display their new art at the most prestigious exhibition in the country: The Royal Academy of Art.

They were expecting criticism, praise, or even ambivalence. What they weren't expecting was the violent abuse hurled at them by the art elite, journalists, and even Charles Dickens. The stale and stodgy art world of mid-Victorian London will not tolerate these upstarts. The defiant PRB will not back down. Now it really is a revolution

Can the young PRB survive the attacks against them? Can their friendship survive growing up?
