Jane Burden Morris

During the summer of 1865, the pre-raphaelite painter and poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti invited the photographer John Robert Parsons to his home in London, to take a memorable series of shots of his favourite model at the time: Jane Morris, wife of William Morris.
While Parsons executed the technical part, it was Rossetti who took care of the cenography, poses, gestures, and each look, hairstyle, costumes and décors - with his mind in his future paintings.
