Letters in Painting: Marie Spartali Stillman

Love's Messenger
Marie Spartali Stillman (1844–1927), was once the most beautiful woman in London, nicknamed "the pearl". She was one of a small number of professional female artists working in the second half of the 19th century. She was an important presence in the Victorian art world of her time and closely affiliated with members of the Pre-Raphaelite circle. 

Spartali Stillman’s style reflects her British Pre-Raphaelite training as well as the influence of Renaissance art, derived from the many years she lived and worked in Italy.
