Overview

A cofounder of the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood, Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882) has become well known to many through the widespread reproduction of his work on posters, cards, and prints.This sumptuous survey of his colorful, romantic art includes major works from all periods of his life in every media including watercolors from the 1850s; paintings of the female figure from 1859 on; representations of artists and their models; studies of Elizabeth Siddall, his wife; late paintings on themes from Dante and the Arthurian legends; the monumental decorative projects at Llandaff Cathedral and at the Oxford Union; and his contributions to the decorative arts (book bindings and illustrations, stained glass, furniture, and picture frames). Published to accompany an exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool and the Van Gogh Museum, the book complements recent scholarship and will stimulate further research on Rossetti. The book and exhibition mark a landmark in Rossetti studies, providing an unprecedented opportunity to view the entire range of his achievement. The contributors include Edwin Becker, exhibition curator at the Van Gogh Museum; Liz Prettejohn, Professor of Art History at Plymouth University; and Julian Treuherz of the National Museums and Galleries on Merseyside. 330 illustrations, 130 in color.
