The Beloved (The Bride), 1866: Canvas Replica Painting: Medium
Item#DA3172
By artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882), in the Tate Museum, London
Shown at her moment of unveiling, the bride, surrounded by bridesmaids, transfixes with the power of her beauty. The bride's Japanese dress and Peruvian headdress, as well as the ethnic origins of her bridesmaids, leave some to speculate that Rossetti is celebrating the diversity of beauty while others argue with his use of the European bride as centerpiece. Rossetti's art was characterized by its sensuality, all of which mirrored actual people and places in his life. 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. Our replica European style, bright gold-toned, ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.
Medium: 25.75"Wx29.25"H. framed (17.75"Wx21.25"H. image size, 4"W. frame)

   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.
