Lizzie Siddal : The Tragedy Of A Pre-Raphaelite Supermodel (HB)
Lucinda Hawksley’s book is a poignant biography that brings Lizzie Siddal to the forefront of her relationship with Rossetti and the Pre-Raphaelites. A contemporary classic, this book gives life to an icon and paints a gripping portrait of her. Immortalised in the infamous painting by British artist Sir John Everett Millais as Ophelia and Beata Beatrix by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Lizzie is a face that captivated a generation.
With this book, Lucinda aims to demystify the aura of tragedy that surrounded Lizzie, right from being saved from the drudgery of a working-class existence to becoming one of the most famous faces in Victorian Britain to tragically ending her young life with an overdose of laudanum in 1862. Lucinda weaves a story with emotional heft and brings forth an untold tale of a troubled but talented woman.
