Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood Painter

Rossetti, born to a literary, Italian immigrant family, struggled mightily all his life to write poetry and paint, and do both well. He never achieved critical acclaim for his painting, but that didn't stop him from co-founding the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. His personal life was marked by tragedy (most of which he was largely responsible for, himself) and an obsession with two women (his own wife and William Morris' wife, Jane), both of whom we see - repeatedly - in his later works.

Important Works:
Beata Beatrix, 1864-70
Dante's Dream at the Time of the Death of Beatrice, 1871
Prosperine, 1874
The Day Dream, 1880

Birth: May 12, 1828, London
Death: April 9, 1882, Birchington on Sea, Kent, England
