The Aesthetic Movement was a late 19th-century art movement that focused on the idea of “art for art’s sake”. It was a reaction to the industrialisation of the Victorian era, and aimed to emphasise the beauty of the natural world and the importance of art in everyday life. The movement was heavily influenced by the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and emphasised the importance of beauty in art, literature, and design. It was characterised by the use of bright colors, intricate patterns, and a focus on nature and the beauty of everyday life. The Aesthetic Movement had a major influence on the development of modern art, and its ideals of beauty and art for art’s sake are still relevant today.
