Rolla Carrying off the Child

Dante Gabriel Rossetti

General Description

Date: 1834 (circa)


Scholarly Commentary


Like the Talbot rescuing his son John from Orleans drawing and other now untraced early works, we know of this picture from WMR's report of it in his Memoir .


DGR must have had in mind Sir Thomas Lawrence's much celebrated painting of this scene.


DGR is illustrating a famous scene from Sheridan's translation of Kotzbue's tragedy Pizzaro.
