  • Print Description
      A Vision of Fiammetta was painted by the iconic Dante Gabriel Rossetti in 1878.  Rossetti's art was characterised by its sensuality and its medieval revivalism which is true reflection of A Vision of Fiammetta.  Rossetti portrays the subject of fourteenth-century Elegia di Madonna Fiammetta, the story of a tragic love affair.  Rossetti showcases a range of symbolism, the short-lived apple blossoms symbolising the transience of beauty, the blood-red bird a messenger of death, butterflies symbolising the soul and an angel seen in the aureole around Fiammetta’s head. As she faces this moment between life and death, Fiammetta shows little emotion, exuding instead a mysterious, allusive air.  A Vision of Fiammetta is a captivating reproduction worthy of a special place in a living room or bedroom setting.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828 – 1882) was a famed British painter and poet known as the eminent member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.  Dante left a other worldly legacy of ethereal portraits of women from mythological and classical literature.  

Dante turned away from detailed religious scenes, investing instead in his obsession with female beauty, which he explored mostly through portraiture. Mythological portraits became most of his life's work and the goddesses, tragic heroines and saints Dante brought to life were based around a handful of long-time lovers and muses.

It is well known that the author J.R.R Tolkien took inspiration from Dante's Pre-Raphaelite scenes for his vision of "middle earth" as depicted in The Lord of the Rings.

Today, Dante's works are held in celebrated collections at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Tate Gallery in London.
