Rossetti on Jane

‘You are the noblest and dearest thing the world has had to show me; and no lesser loss than the loss of you could have brought me so much bitterness, I would still have had this to endure than have missed the fullness of wonder and wondership which nothing else could have made known to me’.

Bryson, John, ed., Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Jane Morris: Their Correspondence (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1976), p. 34.

[Study of Jane Morris for the Virgin in 'The Seed of David']
