Description:
Dante Gabriel Rossetti, 1828 - 1882, was a cofounder of the Pre-Raphaelites, a group of English painters and poets who hoped to bring to their art the richness and purity of the medieval period. Rossetti was also a well-known romantic poet.Romantic love was Rossetti's main theme in both poetry and painting. Rossetti's themes often revolved around women, who, he believed, held the mystery of existence within themselves. He saw them as magical beings, shrouded in secrets and sensuality and he frequently explored the themes of female virtue, beauty, and passion until he excluded all other subjects completely. Elizabeth Siddal, whom he married in 1860, was the subject of many of his paintings.Toward the end of his life, Rossetti sank into a morbid state, possibly induced by his disinterment of the manuscript poems he had buried with his wife and by savage critical attacks on his poetry. He spent his last years as an invalid recluse.This great Photo CD collection contains 106 Dante Gabriel Rossetti paintings.
