Christina Rossetti : a writer's life by Jan Marsh ( Book )
6 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here we learn of the deep sexual passions and ambivalence of her young adulthood; the men she chose and later denied; the warmth of her family life; her close ties to the grand literary figures of Victorian London; the religious devotion that suffused her later years; and her frustrated ambition to fulfill her life as an artist and a woman. Drawing on unread works and newly available letters, Marsh also makes sense for the first time of Rossetti's adolescent breakdown and recurrent depressions

Dante Gabriel Rossetti : painter and poet by Jan Marsh ( Book )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Growing up in early Victorian London, with a dual Anglo-Italian inheritance, Dante Gabriel Rossetti was determined to be a famous painter, or poet, or both. A key member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood at age twenty, he went on to paint world-renowned images of Beatrice, Proserpine, and Astarte, drawn from 'stunners' with soulful eyes and swan-like necks. His poems, like The Blessed Damozel, spoke of unfulfilled love and desire." "His personal life was equally highly coloured. After a long on-off engagement, he married his 'dear dove' Lizzie Siddal, but lost her within two years to a drug overdose. Distraught, he buried the sole manuscript of his poems in her coffin, only to retrieve them for publication seven years later when he fell passionately in love with Janey, wife of his business partner William Morris." "A born leader but moody and quarrelsome, an ambitious painter who refused to exhibit, the contradictory Rossetti suffered a paranoid collapse in his forties, yet recovered to produce his most compelling canvases of darkly brooding femmes fatales."--BOOK JACKET
Holman Hunt and the Pre-Raphaelite vision by Katharine Jordan Lochnan ( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This abundantly illustrated book accompanies a major exhibition of William Holman Hunt's work. It explores the artist's vision and its relevance to contemporary audiences. Despite the great interest in Pre-Raphaelitism, it has been nearly forty years since the last exhibition devoted to Holman Hunt, one of the founders of the movement. His vision, which inspired the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, has lost neither its timeliness or significance." "The book illustrates paintings by Hunt and his associates, John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Arthur Hughes, and also includes drawings, prints, photographs and textiles. It examines Hunt's work in the context of the Brotherhood, and his ideas in relation to the artistic, spiritual, intellectual, emotional and social issues of his age."--Jacket
