Additional Information

This watercolour painting by Rossetti is perhaps inspired by a ballad found in The Lay of the Last Minstrel (Canto VI stanza xi), by Sir Walter Scott, a story of the death of two lovers. A male and a female figure cling to each other against a red brick wall, their clothes and hair seemingly blown by a strong wind. Rossetti inscribed ‘Carlisle 1853’ on the brick wall, under his signature.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828 – 1882) was an English painter, poet, illustrator and translator. In 1848 he founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood alongside Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais. Influenced by literature and medieval revivalism, he would often compose poetry to accompany his paintings, and William Morris, Edward Burne-Jones and Rossetti found each other a source of mutual inspiration. He was married to fellow artist Elizabeth Eleanor Siddal, who modelled for many of his paintings. Several his works form part of Tate’s collection, including many of his most celebrated paintings.
