Excerpt from The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood: A Critical Monograph
Pre-raphaelism was, of course, a return to N ature - it was nothing more and nothing less. It was a thing, in its inception, as perfectly clear, as simple, and as sharp cut as a ray of sunlight driven through the gloom of a cellar from a key-hole in a door. But it fell this particular ray - at a moment when there were so many vapours, SO many winds, so many cross-currents in the air, and in the ensuing half-century so many other rays have since whirled and ﬂashed from so many other searchlights, that it is difficult enough now for any who have not studied on fond this relatively unimportant by-way of human thoughtand its projection to see that original ray in its clear definiteness. For pre-raphaelism was a revolt in the midst of revolts, a Gironde, a Mountain in a very French Revolution of the plastic arts. As a producing agency it gave to the world ten or a dozen pictures, five or six poems, a few statues - and it has caused an inordinate heap of Memoirs.
