Drawing of Lizzie Siddal that I presume is also by Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Pre-Raphaelite model, poet, artist Elizabeth Siddal pursued her artistic talents in an era in which women were not encouraged to embark on such a career.

Study for Delia, Dante Gabriel Rossetti. One of her first sittings for Dante Gabriel Rossetti was for his work The Return of Tibullus to Delia.  Siddal sat for Delia and just as she had embraced the medieval costume of Cesario, she boldly became Delia as she posed with her hair between her lips.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti Seated Delia with eyes closed, head slightly raised and a strand of hair in her mouth. Holding a shuttle in her left hand. Right edge of paper torn diagonally.
