On Saturday 8th September, the Pre-Raphaelite Society will be celebrating the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood’s founding in September 1848. One hundred and sixty-four years ago, in September 1848, the PRB was initiated by John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, determined to create a new school of art. The PRS will celebrate this with #PRBday on Twitter. All day we will be posting quotes and facts about the PRB, and asking people to vote for their favourite PRB painting using the hashtag #PRBday. At the end of the day we’ll let you know which painting won. If you are on Twitter, please join in the conversation!
You can find us on Twitter @PreRaphSoc.
