Documenting the first major exhibition of Pre-Raphaelite sculpture, this scholarly catalogue presents illustrations and individual discussions of some 80 portraits (reliefs, busts and medallions) and figure statues based on literary and mythological models, including many works by Thomas Woolner (1825-1892) and Alexander Munro (1825-1871) as well as sculptures by John Hancock, Alfred Gilbert, Bernhard Smith and ten other chiefly late 19th-century British artists associated with or influenced by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. An introductory discussion of the status of sculpture within the movement is followed by individual reviews of the careers of Munro, Smith, Hancock and John Lucas Tupper (ca. 1823-1879); three essays examining Woolner's life and achievements; and an analysis of Burne-Jones's influence on late 19th-century sculpture.
