Tokmacheva Polina Anatol'evna Lomonosov Moscow State University
Abstract. The article is devoted to one of the most topical and challenging aspects in the study of Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood’s creativity. Cross-cultural communication between England and Italy has always been of interest to the researchers of culture, and a special university was created on Malta to study their mutual influence. The author not only considers the specific manifestations of the Italian images in the paintings of Pre-Raphaelites at the level of subjects, techniques, compositional methods, but also raises the question about the meaning and consequences of such appeal to the images of the past. As a result of the analysis of the Brotherhood’s most pro-Renaissance works the author comes to the conclusion about the important role of the Italian images in the formation of Art Nouveau style in Pre-Raphaelites’ painting.
