Dante Gabriel Rossetti, original name Gabriel Charles Dante Rossetti (1828 – 1882) was an English poet, illustrator, painter and translator, who helped found the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, a group of painters treating religious, moral, and medieval subjects in a non-academic manner. Dante Gabriel Rossetti's art was characterised by its sensuality and its medieval revivalism. Poetry and image are closely entwined in his art prints; he frequently wrote sonnets to accompany his pictures and created art to illustrate poems. Rossetti led a tangled love life and became romantically involved with many of his models and muses. This is reflected in his art prints. He was the main inspiration for a generation of artists most notably the designer William Morris, as well as author JRR Tolkien. His work also influenced the European Symbolists and was a major precursor of the Aesthetic movement.
