English writer and visual artist Gabriel Charles Dante Rossetti had a marked tendency for mysticism in a range of forms. He founded the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848 with William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais, and was later to be the main inspiration for a second generation of artists and writers influenced by the movement, most notably William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones. His work also influenced the European Symbolists and was a major precursor of the Aesthetic movement.

A faith in the option of communicating with the dead may have provoked him on his wife's death to have several of his love poems enclosed in her coffin. No matter what the fact of his poetry, it is by his painting quite than by his poems that Rossetti has a position as a enormous mystic, for despite his fondness for precise handling, most of his pictures are substantially of a mystical personality. They represent the scenes and incidents be said in dreams in a way comparable to the art of William Blake.
