Debra N. Mancoff teaches art history, theory and criticism at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has written extensively on the Pre-Raphaelites.

Few artistic movements capture classic notions of beauty as romantically as the Pre-Raphaelites, a group of 19th-century painters and poets who aimed to revive the purer art of the late medieval period.

In this beautiful volume, Debra N. Mancoff, an expert on Pre-Raphaelite art and the floral lexicon, presents forty breathtaking examples, which illuminate the meaning of flowers in all aspects of Victorian culture. She offers brief commentaries on individual paintings as well as biographies of the period's leading artists and their models.

A captivating introduction to an artistic movement, this exquisitely produced book is also a romantic keepsake of an artistic sensibility that speaks volumes.
