William Holman Hunt (British, 1827-1910)


The Victorian painter William Holman Hunt was one of the founding members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Hunt worked as a clerk from the age of 12 before being accepted at the Royal Academy Schools, where he met Millais and Rossetti. Hunt and his friends rebelled against what they saw as the triviality of British art. They wanted to revive the simplicity and seriousness of art before Raphael. In 1848, they founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.
