This work presents an illustrated appraisal of Rosetti's career, together with 40 large-format reproductions of his finest works in international and private collections. From richly coloured watercolours of Medieval themes to oil paintings of beautiful women, Rossetti's works mirror his unconventional life and obsessions, in particular his idealized image of feminine beauty. Many works feature his highly sensuous oil paintings of the models with whom he often conducted tempestuous affairs, including Elizabeth Siddal, whom he eventually married and who died from a drug overdose; and Jane Burder, the wife of William Morris and the subject of the Rossetti painting that holds the world-record price for a Pre-Raphaelite subject.
