Dante Gabriel Rossetti - Dante's Vision of Rachel and Leah

not exhibited until 1883
commissioned by Ruskin now in the Tate Gallery
Ruskin commissioned Rossetti to make some illustrations from Dante in April 1855. This was completed by October but considered it rather rushed. Elizabeth Siddal modelled for the girl with the purple robe - Leah.
