This, Waugh's first published volume, marked the centenary of the beginning of the painter and poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882). Waugh was fascinated by the free spirit lives of the Pre-Raphaelite artists, and by his own family connection with them (William Holman Hunt had married, successively, two counterparts of his grandfather). Rossetti is both compassionate towards its subject and critical of his self-destructive bottom line. The incisive analysis of Rossetti's painterly techniques contributed to the resurgence of public interest in Rossetti's painting and verse. The biography was also an early formulation of Waugh's lifelong interest in narrative painting, and laid the foundations for his own assurance in the materiality of the spiritual as well as the aesthetic vision of the artist. Although Rossetti was hastily compiled, it is nevertheless elegant and witty.
