Revisiting Rosetti’s Women

Dante Gabriel Rossetti: Portraits of Women

Debra N Mancoff

Thames & Hudson

Best-known for his striking, seductive portraits of women, Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828–1882) was one of the founding members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, a group of artists whose work was inspired by the art of the early Italian Renaissance. This beautiful gift book features examples from the full range of Rossetti’s work, including his sumptuous paintings with their jewel-like colours as well as drawings, print illustrations, decorative designs and staged photographs, tracing the artist’s engagement with mythology, history, literature, biblical subjects and modern life.
