The purpose of the artist’s Muse is manifold. That elusive being who showers inspiration on man and bathes in the glory of the artists recreation. The Pre Raphaelites had an eye for these beautiful women and celebrated their beauty with paint – if not always by deed (you know who you are Mr Rossetti). I came across this video which is accompanied by the most wonderful music, featuring Elizabeth Siddal and Jane Morris (the more well-known of the Muses). The artists include Burne-Jones, Millais, Rossetti and Waterhouse: timeless art.
