Holman Hunt entered the Royal Academy Schools in 1844 where he met Millais, who was to become his closest friend. A founding member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848, and throughout his life an adherent to Pre-Raphaelite principles; his paintings include The Hireling Shepherd (1852), and The Light of the World (1854). In the '70s and '80s, Hunt became increasingly isolated artistically, his later work concentrating on religious themes informed by successive visits to the Holy Land.
