Excerpt from The Cambrian for 1907, Vol. 27: A Welsh-American Monthly Magazine

About 60 years ago there was a reaction of art from what was known as Raphaelism, the style of pictorial art introduced by Raphael, who idealized his characters rather than represented them as they were. The style which is known as Pre Raphaelism, was adopted by a new school of English painters whose doc trine and practice was to follow those artists who lived before Raphael, and who advocated a re turn to nature, a fidelity to the true forms of nature, to a painstaking copying of nature. But as Raphael idealized his art too far, so the new school went to the opposite extreme in following nature. Raphael paint ed Scriptural figures as ii they were kings and emperors, even those char acters who were mere fishermen and peasants and should be depicted as such. The new school on the other hand, loved to picture human forms even in a state of pre-adamic nu ditv. This new school was helped by Turner, and especially by Ruskin.
