    Fanny Cornforth Hughes 1863

  • Andy Harrison

    Fanny Cornforth (c. 1835 – c. 1906)[1] was an English maidservant who became an artist's model and mistress of the Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti. A member of the lower working class of English society, Cornforth performed the duties of housekeeper for Rossetti. In Rossetti's paintings, Fanny Cornforth appears as a fleshy redhead, in contrast to his more ethereal treatments of his other models, Jane Morris and Elizabeth Siddal.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti (12 May 1828 – 9 April 1882) was an English poet, illustrator, painter and translator. He founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848 with William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais, and was later to be the main inspiration for a second generation of artists and writers influenced by the movement, most notably William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones. His work also influenced the European Symbolists and was a major precursor of the Aesthetic movement.
