Pre-Raphaelitism began in 1848 when a group of seven young artists banded together against what they felt was an artificial and mannered approach to painting taught at London’s Royal Academy of Arts. They called themselves the ‘Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood’ (PRB), a name that alluded to their preference for late medieval and early Renaissance art that came ‘before Raphael’. Literature was always as important as fine art to the Pre-Raphaelites; their paintings are often inspired by subjects from the bible, medieval romances, Arthurian legends, Ovid, Chaucer and Shakespeare.

These areas also, with some exceptions in Pre-Columbian civilizations in the Americas, did not develop complex writing systems before the arrival of Eurasians, and their prehistory reaches into relatively recent periods.

With an introduction by the well-known animal psychologist Danilo Mainardi, this book by Francesco Mezzalira discusses the historical and scientific questions raised by animal illustrations, and then looks at specific examples. These range from the Codex Vindobonensis, an illuminated manuscript of the sixth century AD with its illustrations of birds, retiles and anthropods, through fascinating medieval bestiaries crowded with pelicans, eagles and unicorns, all heavy with Christian or heraldic meaning, to zoological depictions of the sixteenth cemtury, where the animals are often accessories to aristocratic portraits or religious paintings. From the realism of Antiquity to the anthropomorphism of Pisanello, Carpaccio and Giambologna, this book unites the themes of art and animals over thousands of years.
