Essential Dante Rossetti

ByAnn Kannings - introduction, interpretation and design

English writer and visual artist Gabriel Charles Dante Rossetti, usually recognized as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, had a marked tendency for mysticism in a range of forms. A faith in the option of communicating with the dead may have provoked him on his wife's death to have several of his love poems enclosed in her coffin. No matter what the fact of his poetry, it is by his painting quite than by his poems that Rossetti has a position as a enormous mystic, for despite his fondness for precise handling, most of his pictures are substantially of a mystical personality. They represent the scenes and incidents be said in dreams in a way comparable to the art of William Blake.
