Short biography
Dante Gabriel Rossetti was a co-founder of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848, and inspired a generation of artists and writers. His work often used medieval themes and featured women; his muses and frequent models were his sister Christina Rossetti, his wife Elizabeth (Lizzy) Siddal, Fanny Cornforth, and Jane Morris. Dante Gabriel Rossetti influenced the Symbolists and was a major precursor of the Aesthetic movement.

His poetry and painting were closely connected -- he often wrote poems to accompany his pictures.
