Against his families wishes, Rossetti married the low-born but beautiful Elizabeth Sidal who would die after just two years. He enoyed countless affairs, most enduring that with Jane, wife of his own friend William Morris. Rossetti retained a warm friendship with many of his models and friends, including Whistler, Ruskin and Swinburne, and his home at Cheyne Row was a hub of artistic discussion and development.
Led by an expert on Art History, Hattie Bennet, this Conversation will discuss the biography of Rossetti, his family and influence on British Art. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding of Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
Hattie has a degree in History of Art and an MA in Historic Interiors, she has a life-long passion and fascination in Fine and Decorative Arts, particularly works produced in Europe from the 16th to 18th century. After working for the Royal Collection in the Print Room at Windsor Castle, she was a curator for a private collector of 17th and 18th century prints and drawings. Hattie has worked for London's foremost framer of important old master paintings during which time she sharpened her appreciation and understanding of the decorative arts and the changing tastes of collecting. Recently she has been dealing in prints and works of art as well as taking groups of all ages to museums and galleries.
