This painted panel decorated one of three cupboard doors that formed the upper part of a large settle belonging to William Morris. The subject of all three panels was Beatrice Portinari, for whom the medieval Italian poet Dante Alighieri nurtured an enduring but unrequited love, as recounted in the Vita Nuova. Rossetti was fascinated by Dante’s story-which he translated for his own publication, The Early Italian Poets (1864) - and saw in it a parallel with his own love for Lizzie Siddal.
