Title: 1904P492 The Blessed Damozel - Study for one of the Pairs of Lovers
Description: 1904P492
The Blessed Damozel - Study for one of the Pairs of Lovers, 1876
Artist: Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A study for one of the couples in the background of the Blessed Damozel. This particular group appears in the left background of the 1875-78 version of the painting in the Fogg Art Museum, Cambridge, Massachusetts, comissioned by William Graham. There is also a version of the painting in the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool (1875-79). The work is based on a poem, 'The Blessed Damozel', by Rossetti. Rossetti is here seen to be making pencil revisions to the back of the male figure.
