MELISSA E. BURON is Associate Curator of European Paintings at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
"With beautiful color images that make the visual connections among the art works and scholarly yet readable essays, this is for lovers of the Pre-Raphaelites as well as those who want to learn more about them." -Sandra Rothenberg, Library Journal "The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco's exhibition bringing together the Pre-Raphaelites with the old Italian masters was an unprecedented feat that demonstrated just how much inspiration the later painters took from their predecessors. Curator Melissa E. Buron makes the story of the exhibition, as well as the story of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, accessible whether you saw the show in person at the Legion of Honor or not." -San Francisco Chronicle
