Il Ramoscello, Bella e Buona, 1865: Canvas Replica Painting: Large
By artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882), in a Private Collection
Most everything about this painting originally commissioned by William Graham - its title, its composition and its subject matter - seems mysteriously in dispute. What remains is a mesmerizingly beautiful portrait of a young woman of destined lineage, declared The Branch: Beautiful and Good. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. The imported, delicately carved hardwood frame boasts a delicate leaf motif with fine feathered detailing finished in antique gold tones.

   Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882)

Rossetti was an English painter and poet who helped found the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, a group of painters treating religious, moral, and medieval subjects in a nonacademic manner. After a general education in the junior department of King's College, Rossetti hesitated between poetry and painting as a vocation. When he was about 14 he went to "Sass's�, an old-fashioned drawing school in Bloomsbury, and then in 1845, to the Royal Academy schools, where he became a full student.

By the time Rossetti was 20, he had already done a number of translations of Italian poets and had composed some original verse, but he was also much in and out of artists' studios and for a short time was, in an informal way, a pupil of the painter Ford Madox Brown. He acquired some of Brown's admiration for the German "Pre-Raphaelites," the nickname of the austere Nazarenes.
