Dante Gabriel Rossetti



Dante Gabriel Rossetti


(b London, 12 May 1828; d Birchington on Sea, Kent, 9 April 1882). Painter, designer and poet.

Despite his Italian parentage, Rossetti never visited Italy. An early disposition for drawing and literature led him to illustrate his sister Maria’s copy of the Iliad in 1840. Three years later his first poem, ‘Sir Hugh the Heron’, was privately printed by his maternal grandfather, Gaetano Polidori.
