Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882)


  Dante Gabriel Rossetti was an English painter, poet, illustrator and translator.He is also one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brootherhood and a precursor of the Aesthetic movement. His early poetry was influenced by John Keats and his later poetry is characterised by the complex thought and feeling.

  He was the son of Gabriel Pasquale Giuseppe Rossetti and Frances Polidori. He was born in London, his family and friends called him ''Gabriel'', but in publications put first the name ''Dante'' in honour of  Dante Alighieri. He was also the brother of poet Christina Rossetti, critic William Michael Rossetti and author Maria Francesca Rossetti. One of his plans was to become a poet, that's why he attended King's College School. However, he also showed interest in painting, under the influence of his studies in Medieval Italian art. He studied at Henry's Sass's Drawing Academy from 1841 to 1845 and then enrolled at the Antique School of the Royal Academy where in 1848 left from. Retained a close relationship with Ford Madox Brown.
Along with Hunt and John Everett Millais created The Pre-Raphaelite Brootherhood and he was mostly interested in the medieval side of the movement. He published several translations of Dante and other Italian Medieval poets. In 1850 Rossetti met Elizabeth Siddal who later became his wife and was model for Pre-Raphaelite painters.


a sea spell                                            
                                                                                                       
                                                                                                  
Her lute hangs shadowed in the apple-tree,
While flashing fingers weave the sweet-strung spell
Between its chords; and as the wild notes swell,
The sea-bird for those branches leaves the sea.
But to what sound her listening ear stoops she?
What netherworld gulf-whispers doth she hear,
In answering echoes from what planisphere,
Along the wind, along the estuary?
She sinks into her spell: and when full soon
Her lips move and she soars into her song,
What creatures of the midmost main shall throng
In furrowed self-clouds to the summoning rune,
Till he, the fated mariner, hears her cry,
And up her rock, bare breasted, comes to die?

   Rossetti's first major paintings display some of the realist qualities of the Pre-Raphaelite movement. His Girlhood of Mary and Ecce Ancilla Domini both portray Mary as a teenage girl. Rossetti prefered symbolic and mythological themes to realistic ones. This was also revealed through his later poetry. Criticism of his paintings caused him to withdraw from public exhibitions and turn to watercolours, which could be sold privately.
  In 1861 Rossetti published The Early Italian Poets including Dante's La Vita Nuova. He became inspired by Arthurian romance and medieval design as well as his friends William Morris and Burne-Jones. He used to write sonnets with some of his paintings such as ''Astarte Syriaca''.


                                            Astarte Syriaca                                                                               


                    Proserpine                    

Afar away the light that brings cold cheer
Unto this wall, - one instant and no more
Admitted at my distant palace-door
Afar the flowers of Enna from this drear
Dire fruit, which, tasted once, must thrall me here.
Afar those skies from this Tartarean grey
That chills me and afar how far away,
The nights that shall become the days that were.

Afar from mine own self I seem, and wing
Strange ways in thought, and listenfor a sign
And still some heart unto some soul doth pine,
O, Whose sounds mine inner sense in fain to bring,
Continually together murmuring) --
'Woe me for thee, unhappy Proserpine'.


POETRY.......




Ophelia

I
On the calm black water where the stars are sleeping
White Ophelia floats like a great lily;
Floats very slowly, lying in her long veils...
- In the far-off woods you can hear them sound the mort.
For more than a thousand years sad Ophelia
Has passed, a white phantom, down the long black river.
For more than a thousand years her sweet madness
Has murmured its ballad to the evening breeze.
The wind kisses her breasts and unfolds in a wreath
Her great veils rising and falling with the waters;
The shivering willows weep on her shoulder,
The rushes lean over her wide, dreaming brow.
The ruffled water-lilies are sighing around her;
At times she rouses, in a slumbering alder,
Some nest from which escapes a small rustle of wings;
- A mysterious anthem falls from the golden stars.

William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905)














  William Bouguereau was a French academic painter. In his paintings he used classical themes as well as mythological with obvious and great emphasis on the female human body. In his time gained popularity and was being given orders from rich patrons.He created an idealistic world but with a touch of realistic humanizing sense of the human being itself, especially through his numerous portraits.
