Dante Gabriel Rossetti

pastel on pale green paper

This is the original drawing that was done in 1871 and given as a gift to Jane Morris, and it was the first work by DGR to be reproduced as a photograph, in 1877, through Frederic Shields and the Autotype Company. It was also the drawing that led DGR to plan a book of double works that would feature the image of Jane Morris: Perlascura: Twelve Coins for One Queen . The project did not, however, materialize.
