Purportedly filled with exotic furnishings, art, and animals, painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti's home in Victorian London was also the setting for rumors of affairs, nocturnal ramblings, and drunken poetry readings, involving such famous people of the time as James McNeill Whistler and William Morris. This book explores the link between the bohemian lifestyle and the artistic experimentation of this group. 60 illustrations, 40 in color. 80 pp.

Rossetti and His Circle based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This strives to be a niche study in the crowded Rossetti critical mix, and succeeds despite its brevity. The author has some interesting insights into the artists such as Burne-Jones who have affinities with pre-Raphaelitism but are not always included in study of them. The illustrations are fine, but there are many longer books on Rossetti which are more definitive.
