This Art Book with Foreword and antated reproductions by Maria Tsaneva contains 117 selected paintings and drawings of Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Dante Gabriel Rossetti was an English poet, illustrator, painter and translator. Rossetti's art was characterized by its sensuality and its medieval revivalism. His early poetry was influenced by John Keats. He is considered one of the most unconventional painters of the 19th century. Through his methods, he distinguished himself from the Pre-Raphaelite movement; he showed interest on the exact representation of details, avoided complicated backgrounds, and tended away from landscapes. He hence chose primarily mythological or literary motives, though with narrative moment.
