In the twenty-first century, even those who do not know Lizzie Siddals name will recognize her face: she is Millaiss doomed Ophelia and Rossettis beatified Beatrice in two of the nineteenth centurys most famous paintings. As Lucinda HawksleyMoreIn the twenty-first century, even those who do not know Lizzie Siddals name will recognize her face: she is Millaiss doomed Ophelia and Rossettis beatified Beatrice in two of the nineteenth centurys most famous paintings. As Lucinda Hawksley explores in Lizzie Siddal, Face of the Pre-Raphaelites, Siddals fame was a remarkable phenomenon: in a time when she was the opposite of the Victorian beauty (she was red-haired, quite tall, and painfully thin), she nonetheless scaled the social ranks to become the unlikely ideal.A pivotal figure in Londons artistic world of the mid-nineteenth century, Lizzies short life ended in a delirium of opium.

In this, the first full work devoted solely to Lizzie—her austere beginnings, quick rise to fame, and tragic end—Hawksley brings together the worlds of art and literature with style and verve. Lizzie Siddal was not merely the Pre-Raphaelites obsession and muse, she was a talented poet and artist in her own right. Her tragic and haunting life story serves as a cautionary tale, offering many parallels to the modern-day world of art, fashion, beauty, and our obsession with what we hold to be the ideal.
