Dante Gabriel Rossetti
Painting - Oil On Canvas
A reproduction of a work by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, "Venus Verticordia". This Pre-Raphaelite masterpiece of about 1866 is haunting and seductive. The artist composed a poem for the work which is quoted below. It is now displayed in the Rossetti Cotes Art Gallery and Museum in Bournemouth, England. She hath the apple in her hand for thee, Yet almost in her heart would hold it back; She muses, with her eyes upon the track Of that which in thy spirit they can see. Haply, 'Behold, he is at peace,' saith she; 'Alas! the apple for his lips, - the dart That follows its brief sweetness to his heart, - The wandering of his feet perpetually.' A little space her glance is still and coy; But if she gets the fruit that works her spell, Those eyes shall flame as for her Phrygian boy. Then shall her bird's strained throat woe foretell, And as far seas moan as a single shell, And her grove glow with love-lit fires of Troy.
