An annual in the publisher's original cloth binding. All edges gilt. Illustrated with a frontispiece, 2 plates, 5 full page illustrations and numerous further illustrations in the text. Collated complete. The Art Journal was the most important British 19th-century magazine on art. This magazine published annuals on prominent artists. In this 1902 Easter Annual, Helen Rossetti explores the life and work of Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882), who founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848 with William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais. His art influenced the Symbolists and the Aesthetic Movement, and was an inspiration to well-regarded artists and writers such as Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris.
