designer loves art...William Holman Hunt...186

sometimes one goes to extreme measures to be a realistic as possible…

This is William Holman Hunt

although working as a clerk in his junior years he still managed to enter the Royal Academy, with 2 of his colleges Millais and Rossetti he started the Pre-Raphaelite movement and was the one that remained more faithful to it. this movement set in the Victorian times, has a morality and realistic subjects and even went to the Middle East so that his biblical images where painted in their original locations. his paintings are beautifully detailed, with rich warm colors and his subjects were mostly his friends and family rather than models.
