 Morbid Outlook - Elizabeth Siddal
Elizabeth, by all accounts, suffered continuously from fragile health, whether this was as a result of being in such demand as a model or related to the passion of the time for going to extreme lengths to appear as fashion dictated.
Elizabeth seems to have had an air of fragility about her, as if she was tied to this world by no more than wishes and tears, this only served to make her all the more attractive to the Pre-Raphaelite artists.
Elizabeth lay in her coffin, untouched by decay despite being buried for seven years, indeed it appeared only that she slept and could be awoken by the slightest touch.

Elizabeth Eleanor Siddall (the patrimonial spelling) was one of seven children of a working-class London cutler originally from Sheffield.
Lizzie Siddal, as she was known to her friends, first became acquainted with members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood through their friend Walter Deverell, who may or may not have taken note of her while visiting a milliner’s shop with his mother.
In addition to painting, Siddal wrote a small body of poetry, although this aspect of her creativity does not seem to have been widely known, even during her lifetime.

 Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Elizabeth Siddall
Elizabeth Siddall was the daughter of a Sheffield cutler.
Mr Rossetti related many of the interesting episodes in the life of Elizabeth Siddall before the marriage took place, her relations with Tennyson's household etc. As for the marriage, postponed indefinitely, it was Elizabeth's precarious, if not to say already hopeless, state of health that decided the celebration.
Rossetti, in the excess of grief at the death of Elizabeth, believing in good faith that life for him was now over, had interred beside her a small box containing all of his poems whose publication had just been announced.

 Paradise Descending   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Dante is dressed in red, symbolic of passion, while Beatrice, with the face of Elizabeth Siddal, is dressed in green, symbolic of life, an ironic color, given Beatrice's status as the dead beloved of Dante.
Siddal's face is an expression of ecstasy, both spiritual and sexual; finally, Rossetti was able to join the spiritual and physical loves in this painting.
It may be that he found he could go no further with this subject--moreover, the guilt he felt over Siddal's death, convinced as he was that he killed her, may have driven him away from a subject so dear to his heart and his art.

 Elizabeth Siddall, Pre-Raphaelite Artist and Model
Elizabeth Eleanor Siddall's face looks out from some of the most famous paintings of the Victorian Age; she is Millais' Ophelia and Rossetti's Beatrice.
Piece presents Siddall as an independent young artist who did not subscribe to the usual roles or mores for women of her time; depicts her in a fresh light as an artist who was very much ahead of her time.
Also explores why presenting Siddall as younger than she actually was proved so important in her relationship with Dante Gabriel Rossetti and her portrayal as the innocent milliner's assistant he rescued.

Elizabeth Siddal was the famous Pre-Raphaelite model who did not write an autobiographical text, but whose paintings may be read as a visual autobiography.
She pretended to restore the truth shadowed by Violet Hunt who had claimed that the note was a sort of justifying lament: “My life is so miserable that I wish for no more of it.” Although between the two versions there was a 20 year gap, the legendary note is still evoked.
Since witnesses’ perspectives on Siddal are infested with either Victorian preconceived ideas or Pre-Raphaelite aesthetic principles, I shall follow her own story embedded in her own works, both poetical and pictorial.

 On Love and Literature: The Portrayal of Women in the Work of Dante Gabriel Rosetti
In this painting, Rosetti gives his perception of a scene which is not in the play by depicting his own in which Ophelia, the victim of her rejected love for Hamlet and the death of her father, having gone insane,is escorted out of the court into which she has just burst.
In 1864, Rosetti finished a memorial to her titled Beata Beatrix, depicting an image of Elizabeth as Beatrice from The Divine Comedy The painting with its wealth of symbols, shows a parallel between the death of Elizabeth and that of Beatrice.
According to art historian Elaine Sharpe, the dove was an important symbol to Rosetti because he often referred to Elizabeth as a child or wounded bird for which he must care, often associating her with the dove, an archetypal Victorian bird.

This would become a lifelong identification with the poet, emphasized by his relationship with Elizabeth Siddal (Rodgers, p 16).
In 1860, Rossetti married Siddal, a model and artist with whom he had an affair.
Here, Rossetti's obsession with Dante reaches its fulfillment--in his dead wife, he has found his Beatrice, and now is able to take the role of Dante himself, enduring his own inferno of guilt over her death, for Siddal's death did haunt Rossetti for the rest of his life, until his death in 1882.

Best-known is probably Elizabeth Siddal, the doomed supermodel wife of Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
Subsequently the artist tried to run off with Zambaco, but "brain fever" sent him back to the arms of his long-suffering wife, who was a model of feminine loyalty: Burne-Jones and Zambaco continued to be involved for several more years.
Still, much of this material has been covered before, notably in books by Gay Daly and Jan Marsh, and there is a sense that the "forbidden love" of the subtitle has been overhyped to keep the winsome if strong-willed May in the running with her less fortunate sisters under the skin, Siddal and Zambaco.

Through Rossetti, Siddal met Ford Madox Brown and then Ruskin, who became her patron in around 1855, buying everything she had drawn.
Unfortunately, Siddal seems to have become addicted to Laudanum some time before 1860, the year she finally married Rossetti.
