That sounds really interesting as i love the Pre-Raphaelites, especially Millais, Bourne Jones and John William Waterhouse. I've got several prints [obviously not original] in my house. I'm not so keen on Rossetti though, but i quite like his sister[christina] poetry.

Waterhouse is not a true Pre-Raphaelite, but is being billed as a Modern one in the current exhibition.

Took a while to find an in line version of this picture that captured the stunning colours properly. This is still not quite right, but better than the others I found.

"Desperate Romantics" is good fun! I'm really enjoying it, historical liberties and all.

Radio Times reviewer described 'Desperate Romantics' as ''The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood presented as Take That'' :*:

I like how it's not been treated so seriously - the shenanigans that went on amongst the Pre-Raphs are legendary. I particularly like this quote from a blog I found about the "problem" that Ruskin had with Effie Gray - how can there not be humour in something like this?

"This almost total lack of the pubic thatch in art has had sorry repercussions. On his wedding night, Ruskin, a connoisseur of fine art who had spent many years studying the Great Masters, was frightened out of his wits by his new wife. Sadly Effie Gray had neglected to shave off her pubic hair - in line with classical statuary - and the sight of her hairy vulva so repulsed Ruskin that he left the marital bed never to return.

"It may be thought strange that I could abstain from a woman who to most people was so attractive. But though her face was beautiful, her person was not formed to excite passion. On the contrary, there were certain circumstances in her person which completely checked it." Ruskin speaking to his lawyer.

Effie was later to marry John Everett Millais, who was clearly not put off by hirsute pudenda as they has eight children. " :D
