John Brett (1831 - 1902) was an artist associated with the Pre-Raphaelite movement, mainly notable for his highly detailed landscapes. In 1853 he entered the Royal Academy schools, but was more interested in the ideas of John Ruskin and William Holman Hunt. Brett was also a keen astronomer, having studied the subject from childhood. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society in 1871. Brett was a founder member of the Art Workers' Guild and Master in 1890.
