Elizabeth Siddal, the tragedy of a Pre-Raphaelite supermodel by Lucinda Hawksley, hardcover, dustjacket, condition very good

Before the modern supermodel, there was Lizzie Siddal, whose image captivated a generation–and whose life ended tragically in a laudanum-soaked suicide.
Saved from the drudgery of a working-class existence by Dante Rossetti, the young Pre-Raphaelite poet and painter who became her lover, Lizzie Siddal was one of the most famous faces in Victorian Britain and a pivotal figure in London's artistic scene.
