In an era when lower-class women generally lived out their lives in obscurity, Lizzie Siddal instead became one of the most famous faces in Victorian Britain and a pivotal figure of London's artistic world, the model for such classic paintings as her husband Dante Gabriel Rossetti's Beata Beatrix and John Everett Millais's Ophelia. In this biography—which features 24 pages of black and white illustrations—Lucinda Hawksley recounts the surprisingly modern tale of this talented and charismatic young woman's rise to notoriety, chronicling as well Siddal's tempestuous relationship with Rossetti, her struggle with laudanum addiction, and her suicide at age 32.
