Nazarenes (Art)
(aka 'Lukasbruder' - the Brotherhood of Saint Luke)

Movement founded in 1809 by Overbeck, Vogel, Hottinger and Pfoor in Rome. The purpose of the group was to renew German religious art by imitating works of artists such as Durer, Perugino and the young Raphael. The Nazarenes' ideas are considered the primary example of the German Romantic movement.
