Lizzie Siddal

The tragic life of the Pre-Raphaelite ‘Supermodel’, or, as the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood would have termed it then, a ‘Stunner’: saved from drudgery in a millinery work-room by the astute Pre-Raphaelite artist W.H. Deverell, Lizzie Siddal rose to become one of the most famous faces in Victorian Britain and a pivotal figure of London's artistic world – moving in the circles of the Rossettis, the Ruskins and the Burne-Joneses to name but a few - until tragically ending her young life in a laudanum-soaked suicide in 1862. In the 21st century, those who do not know her name recognise her face: she is Millais' doomed Ophelia and Rossetti's beatified Beatrice. Her image haunts the viewer and has become the globally recognised incarnation of Pre-Raphaelite art. This colourful and emotionally-charged biography takes Lizzie from the background of Dante Gabriel Rossetti's life and, finally, brings her to the forefront of her own.

Hardback, 230 pages, 16 black and white and 14 colour illustrations.
