Title: 1904P452 Rosso Vestita [Dressed in Red]
Description: 1904P452
Rosso Vestita [Dressed in Red], 1850
Artist: Dante Gabriel Rossetti

This is the artist's second watercolour, and originally formed part of a large design for Kate the Queen, which was destroyed by Rossetti but of which four fragments remain. The subject was taken from Browning's poem 'Pippa Passes'. The entire composition was to represent a queen sitting among many maidens in a 'painted gallery'.
