There's a Painter of Portraits named Chapman

Dante Gabriel Rossetti

General Description

Date: 1864?

Scholarly Commentary


The limerick is directed at the painter George Chapman, who worked principally as a portraitist. DGR was relatively friendly with him during the 1860s and this limerick may belong to one of the dinners he attended at Cheyne Walk in the mid-1860s.

A general commentary on DGR's limericks and their context is available.
