It is often suggested that after Turner’s death in 1851, there was a decline in landscape painting in Britain. This talk aims to prove the contrary – namely that Pre-Raphaelite artists chose to look afresh at the natural world. The brightness of their canvases and sharply focused details championed John Ruskin’s ideal of seeking ‘truth to nature’. In this context, they often painted in the open air, anticipating the practice of later Impressionist artists.
