Rossetti: Painter and Poet

Biography, Published 2011, 272p. by J.B. Bullen

Dante Gabriel Rossetti is the most intriguing and flamboyant figure in nineteenth-century British art. He inspired the first Pre-Raphaelite generation of 1849 and the second generation ten years later and both brought about significant changes in British art. Rossetti’s mission was to transcend the division that separated body and soul and, through the visionary power of art, reconcile what he saw as elements fundamental to human experience.
