Additional Information

One of Rossetti’s works influenced by the art of the Middle Ages, this watercolour painting shows St George in an embrace with Princess Sabra, at what the artist informs us through the title is their wedding. The head of the dragon St George has slain lies in a box to the right of the couple, and the princess is threading a lock of her hair through the top of her groom’s helmet. The painting is almost crowded with details, and the artist’s signature and the date of the work are inscribed on the wooden box at bottom right.

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.
