Portrait of Elizabeth Siddal - A watercolor portrait by Rossetti. 'One face looks out from all his canvases', wrote his sister, Christina. 'Fair as the moon and joyful as the light...Not as she is but as she fills his dream.'
May Morris - one of the two daughters of the poet and craftsman, William Morris and his wife Jane. In this study, Rossetti has given May the strong look of her mother, with whom Rossetti was infatuated. This painting bears the inscription ' M.M. aetat X1872', the year of Rossetti's collapse. Both May and her sister Jenny were fond of Rossetti, who often asked after them, once even offering to adopt May.
