Marie Spartali Stillman: a Portrait by Dante Gabriel Rossetti

She was arguably the greatest female artist in the Pre-Raphaelite movement.

And she was a great beauty. When Swinburne met her for the first time, he was so overcome that he exclaimed, she is so beautiful that I want to sit down and cry.

(Dante Gabriel Rossetti)
