This is an excellent work for those interested in the characters and lives of the Pre-Raphaelite muses, their relationships with the artists and with each other. They were friends, lovers, helpmates and several (such as Elizabeth Siddal, Georgiana Burne-Jones, and Jane Burden Morris) were creative in their own right. No matter how celebrated their public, artistic personas became (Siddal's and Morris' most especially) their positions were precarious with the social and fiscal security of a "good" marriage.

In her lifetime, Siddal gained some recognition for her talent, but most of the others, while acclaimed for their depictions on canvas, were generally bound by societal expectations to remain in supportive roles of their men. The strong and affectionate friendship between Elizabeth Siddal and the hardworking Emma Madox Brown is given its due and the characters and lives of Annie Miller and Fanny Cornforth - both more sensible than previously given credit for - are rescued from "fallen women" tropes that previous writers have defaulted to. Jane Burden's beguiling character and sensible marriage irrevocably changed the dynamic of the friendships and relationships and had long term emotional consequences for Siddal, Rossetti and Morris. However, it's Georgiana Burne-Jones, frustrated by the limitations of personal fulfillment in Victorian marriage and motherhood, but who came into her own as she matured and following her husband's demise, that strikes the most modern and sympathetic chord.

This is one of the saddest books I have ever read.

I always loved the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood because of their wonderful art work. Sadly, after reading this book I found that the Victorian period had no love for women artists. Many of these 24+ women that made up the "Sisterhood" had talent, as good, if not better, then their male counterparts.

Many of the male artists of the "Brotherhood" and their hangers on saw the women as simply women to take, have their way with and then drop. There was little desire shown by the men to help the women to show their work.

All in all, I learned what a sad time it was to be a woman. Most of these women came from lower middle class families. As long as you had a job you had a life - lose your job and you literally ended up on the street. Try to raise your status and you were put down - even if you only desired to become "middle class". For most part it seemed a loveless world filled with pain, unfilled dreams and drugs to ease the pain of life.

I will still be in awe of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and Sisterhood but will never be able to look at their work without remembering the lives they led. The whole book was an eye opening experience.

One can stumble here if you are looking for a 'casual' book about the Pre-Raphaelites, this isn't it. But if you are interested in truly understanding these women and their times, this is a must read in my opinion.

It is so easy to forget how impossibly HARD it was for a woman to achieve any kind of equality of chance or treatment in those days. Obedient 'saint' (wife never seen or heard) or wanton 'sinner'(prostitute) were the roles they were given or forced into by a overall society that was totally unable to grant them any artistic or intellectual value. Even for a woman to model for an artist was to be considered no better than a common streetwalker.

But these women were the models, the muses, the lovers, the wives, the inspiration and the despair, sometimes the victors and sometimes the victims of the movement. That these women, mostly low born, were able to leave any mark was a mark of achievement. That they forced open the door to equal treatment even a little was a stellar accomplishment against terrible odds.

If you are interested in these Artists, theirs times, the society they lived in - if you truly want to understand their art, this book is simply a must read. As the saying goes 'Behind every great man is a greater woman'.
