Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. The style of painting in vogue from the time of Giotto (died 1336) to that of Raphael (a celebrated Italian painter, 1483-1520); specifically, a modern revival of this style. The essential characteristic of the revived style is rigid adherence to natural form and effect, and consequent rejection of all effort to elevate or heighten the effect artificially, by modifications, whether in drawing, arrangement, or coloring, based on conventional rules. The name is also given to the application of similar principles in poetical composition, shown in attention to minute details.
- n. The cult of the Preraphaelite Brotherhood.
