Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828–1882) was an exotic figure on the stage of bohemian Victorian London, his life a sensational mix of romance, tragedy, rebellion, and genius. Lisa Tickner's text explores three distinct phases in Rossetti's career: the paintings produced during his affiliation with the Pre-Raphaelites, the watercolors of the 1850s, and the late oils. The inclusion of cartoons, letters, poetry, and photographs provides a well-rounded picture of this complex and original artist.
