|Frederick George Stephens (1828-1907)|
Frederick George Stephens was a student at the Royal Academy with Holman Hunt, Gabriel
Rossetti, John Everett Millais, and Thomas Woolner. He was asked to join the original three
members of the PRB (Hunt, Rossetti, and Millais) in 1848. It is generally agreed that
Stephens' talent for painting was sparse, however, and he eventually gave up art for teaching.
In 1860, Stephens wrote a biography, published anonymously, of William Holman Hunt.
In 1861, he became the art critic for The Athenaeum, a job he held for forty years.
