Cinematic Nature of English Pre-Raphaelites’ Painting

Cover Page


The article analyses the peculiarities of the Pre-Raphaelite style from the viewpoint of its cinematic imagery. The work of Millais, Rossetti and Hunt is described in terms of film language (close-ups, the subdivision of the picture’s composition into individual narratives, the creation of a particular mood by using details, the background as a long shot, etc.) explaining the hyper-realism of the Pre-Raphaelites.
