Dante G Rossetti & Friends

Coloured pencils & ink letters in a sketchbook. Rossetti was an artist who was interested in literature as much as drawing and painting (More unusual than you may think) Some Pre-Raph stuff is in the Manchester Art Gallery collection & that's where I copied this from. We saw a major retrospective of his stuff in Amsterdam a few years later & it blew me away. There's also a drawing here of a naked lady for those of you who think I'm taking myself too seriously.

Enjoy 'em both!
