Proserpine Greeting Card
, Dante Gabriel Rossetti illustrates, in his typical Pre-Raphaelite style, the Roman goddess who lives in the underworld during Winter. Rossetti worked for seven years on eight separate canvases before he finished with it. His Proserpine, like his model Jane Morris, is an exquisitely beautiful woman, with delicate facial features, slender hands, and flawlessly pale skin set off by her thick raven hair. Rossetti painted it at a time when his mental health was extremely precarious and his love for Jane Morris was at its most obsessive.
