Dante Gabriel Rossetti

General Description

Date: 1853

Scholarly Commentary


This is one of the drawings that DGR and his PRB friends made on 12 April “for yourself [Woolner], Bernhard & Bateman to have reciprocated as there proposed”. The pictures were sent to Woolner in Australia, where he had recently emigrated. Edward Bateman (1816-1897) was a decorative artist; Barnard is the minor painter and sculptor Bernhard Smith (1820-1885) (see DGR's letter to Woolner of 16 April 1853, Fredeman, Correspondence, 53. 23 ). Other drawings were sent in earlier letters: see the commentary for The Fire Fiend.
