Scholarly Commentary


“This is the largest and most formal of Rossetti's modestly few self-portrait drawings. In 1861 he was thirty-three and had been married for a year” ( Wildman, Visions of Love and Life, 190 ).

The other self-portraits include a pencil drawing and a pen and ink drawing, both in the National Portrait gallery, a pen and ink drawing owned by Mrs. Patrick Gibson, the Fitzwilliam Museum's pen and sepia drawing, the pencil drawing in the Ashmolean.
