The pre-Raphaelites, under Dante Gabriel Rossetti, presented themselves to the clear, cool representations of the up to then prevailing classicism: he and his co-workers William Holmanhunt, Edward Burne-Jones and John Everett Millais were inspired by the style of the Middle Ages and Renaissance and brought their natural, faithful portrayal of people and landscapes into their works. Popular motifs included antique and religious scenes as well as mythical figures, and portrait painting was also of great importance.

In addition to the Pre-Raphaelites, further stylistic influences influenced the art of the Victorian era: Frederic Leighton, whose most famous paintings depict young women in both ancient and biblical scenes, saw himself as a representative of neoclassicalism. Among the representatives of Academic Realism is Lawrence Alma-Tadema, who mainly devoted herself to the history painting. In the pictures of John William Waterhouse pre-Raphaelite, classical and impressionistic influences are found.

The most famous works of the Victorian era are the "Beata Beatrix", "The Light of the World" by William Holman Hunt and "Ophelia" by John Everett Millais, created by Dante Gabriel Rossetti. With the emergence of classical modernism at the beginning of the twentieth century, Victorian art moved into the background; It was only in the 1970s that it experienced an art-historical upturn.
