A more typical PRB painting also took our fancy.Rossetti's Venus Verticordia a rare nude and obviously not what the person who commissioned it was expecting as he had another, less revealing, version painted. He explained that for an 'old timer' it was to voluptuous. The poem on which Rossetti based the painting was one which showed women as the corrupter of men.
