This week we are taking a look at antique prints, and focusing on prints of Victorian paintings. Prints done in this way says much for the popularity of the era and the styles used during this time. These fascinating styles and themes used in Victorian art were largely inspired by the many changes brought about by the industrial revolution. This period brought mass manufacturing techniques, great urbanisation and with it poverty, disease and hardship.
To counteract the effects of these massive changes Victorians chose to create artwork that idealised the Victorian period, almost as if they had chosen to create a world where the ugliness of the changes around them did not exist. There were many themes and styles and during this time; we saw the rise of the Pre-Raphaelite period in 1848 with themes of realism and truth in the natural world and in the second wave of this movement myth, ambiguity, chivalry and symbolism. read more
