Pen and ink drawing by Dante Gabriel Rossetti
This is exciting: a large collection of 2257 drawings, studies, prints and paintings by the Pre-Raphaelites. Where?
The Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery Pre-Raphaelite Online Resource.
Shown here are just a handful of gems by Dante Gabriel Rossetti. He made these drawings around 1849-1850. Aren't they incredibly lovely? 1."Ecce Ancilla Domini - Female Nude - Study for The Virgin", 2. Sketch of a Young Woman, 3."To caper nimbly in a Lady's Chamber to the lascivious pleasing of a Lute" and 4."Love's Mirror or a Parable of Love".
I can't wait to go back and look again. I'm inspired!

Hey Amy,
Over here in the UK the BBC has just done a "dramatised" version of the events surrounding the PR brotherhood. It took enormous liberties with historical accuracy but was great fun. It was called "Desperate Romantics". If it gets shown on TV in the states,watch it, I think you might enjoy it!
