Simon Solomon was close to people in the Pre-Raphaelite circle until it became known that he was a homosexual. Despite their liberal views, members of the group (who seemingly slept with everybody) shunned him, and his beautiful paintings were no longer exhibited. He died as an penniless alcoholic in a public workhouse.
