Portrait of Elizabeth Siddal

Book - 1860?
Rate this:
Elizabeth Siddal posed as an artists' model for many of the Pre-Raphaelite painters and was the model for Millais' well-known Ophelia. Siddal also studied painting under Dante Gabriel Rossetti and was his greatest muse, both artistically and poetically. After many years of postponement, possibly due to the Rossetti family's disapproval of her working-class background and his own wandering eye, Siddal married Rossetti. At the age of 32, Siddal died of a laudanum overdose, or, some speculate, suicide, which devastated Rossetti. It is thought he painted thousands of images of her over his career.
