Dante Gabriel Rossetti


Added to




The young woman portrayed here is Janey, the wife of William Morris.
Rossetti fell in love with her and took her wavy hair, pouting lips, and
beautiful eyes as inspiration for many of the Pre-Raphaelite femmes fatales
of his other works. This portrait depicts her in a day dream, looking off
into the distance. On her lap is a book she has been reading and she holds
a rose in her left hand.
