Book: The Rossettis
By Carol Jacobi (Curator of British Art, 1850-1915, Tate Britain)
A visually stunning book devoted to the radical Rossetti generation. The Rossettis' approach to art, love and lifestyles are considered revolutionary. This is explored by a range of short thematic essays containing fresh, and surprising research, accompanied by beautiful and iconic Pre-Raphaelite illustrations. Featuring artworks and writings by Dante Gabriel, Christina and Elizabeth (nee Siddal), the book distinguishes the Rossettis from Victorian culture and foregrounds their countercultural roles.
