“Sweetness and light.”

This is the first of a group of paintings exploring the use of lay figures by the the Pre-Raphaelites. This group of artists did not agree with the use of lay figures as they distorted the romantic naturalism that they were seeking. Although they were critical of the mechanical rigidity most of them used lay figures in their studio preparation of their compositions.
