Hello All
Following on with the Pre-Raphaelite theme I thought I would put together a top 10 of my favorite Pre-Raphaelite art works.
This is my take on the artists works and you may have some different paintings that you would have included.
So when you have looked at my choice perhaps you would like to send me one or two of your favorite paintings from this era.
If I get enough replies I will put them together in another posting.
Regards
David
