Paul Smith: ‘The Pre-Raphaelites Go Swimming’

When I was an art student I wrote a dissertation on the Victorian Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood of artists as I was fascinated by their continuing popularity. So I feel very familiar with the characters in these pictures and spent the summer creating a series of paper pools of various sizes for Paul Smith Design. They have been updated and are as I imagine them swimming today. Google the names plus ‘Pre-Raphaelite’ to find out about each one. They’re now on their way to Los Angeles for sale in the Paul Smith store on Melrose Avenue.
