Beautiful Dreams Calendar, Wall, Pomegranate
The Pre-Raphaelites believed that art had taken a wrong turn in Renaissance times: that technique, style, and sensibility had all become more artificial, insincere, and constrained by fashion post-Raphael (who died in the early sixteenth century). Thus they sought to supplant artifice with vigor, sincerity, and fresh, "unapproved" technique. Lushly colorful, richly detailed, and possessed of an understated sensuality, this calendar's images include Rossetti's Daydream, Millais' Ophelia, De Morgan's Cadence of Autumn, and Burne-Jones' Mirror of Venus. This 2006 Wall calendar was published by Pomegranate.
