Abstract:

Dante Gabriel Rossetti was the central figure of the Pre-Raphaelites. Together with Holman Hunt and Millais, he started the original Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and was the 'poetic inspiration' of the movement. His turbulent and romantic imagery has always beguiled and intrigued art-lovers. This beautifully illustrated book, published to accompany the landmark Rossetti exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and the Walker Gallery in Liverpool, is the most thorough and up-to-date analysis available today of the life and career of this pivotal 19th-century English painter. It reproduces all his most famous works in superb colour. Major sections are devoted to the artist's subjects from Dante; his representations of artists and their models; his drawings of Elizabeth Siddall; the watercolours of the late 1850s; his monumental projects at Llandaff Cathedral and at the Oxford Union; and his contributions to the decorative arts in book bindings and illustrations, stained glass and furniture. This wonderful volume is essential for enthusiasts of nineteenth-century art and will stimulate interest in Rossetti for many years to come.
