The Cult of Beauty: The Aesthetic Movement 1860-1900

The movement strongly contrasted against other contemporary artistic movements, such as the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood; whilst the PRB were strongly illustrating narratives, the Aesthetics aimed to concentrate on the form and beauty of an object.
