Being bohemian …

Being bohemian …

… according the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.

Just for the record my cat is named after the picture above.
Recently I decided to read about the life of the John Everett Millais and for my surprise I found a incredible history over the life of the model in it.
Elizabeth Siddal was not only the model of the picture.
She was also a poet and an artist and the tormented soul that married Dante Gabriel Rosseti.

For more check this:
The book about her: Lizzie Siddal: Face of the Pre-Raphaelites – Lucinda Hawksley

The book that explain the life of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood: Pre-Raphaelites in Love – Gay Daly

And it you are too lazy to read, this is the tv miniseries made by the BBC: Desperate Romantics

Of course this are novels, if your are looking for really good arty information about the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood please discard this information!
