* * *Dante Gabriel Rossetti [Dante Gabriel Rossetti](1828–82) an English painter and ↑poet. In 1848 he formed the ↑Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood with John Everett Millais and Holman Hunt. His earliest work includes The Girlhood of Mary Virgin (1849), with his sister Christina Rossetti as the model. Rossetti’s best-known paintings in the period 1850–1862, for example The Daydream (1880), are of tall, thin women with pale skin and sad expressions, and they are now considered to be typical of the Pre-Raphaelite style. For many of them his model was Elizabeth Siddal, whom he married in 1860. From the mid 1860s his model was William Morris's wife, Jane. Rossetti also published several collections of poetry and translated the work of Dante and other poets.
