Dante Gabriel Rossetti - circa 1865

This is one of the few known photographs of Alexa. It was taken by J. R. Parsons, the same photographer who took many pictures of Jane Morris (wife of William Morris and one of Dante Gabriel Rossetti's favorite models) in 1865. Both this picture and the set of Jane appear to have been taken for artistic inspiration rather than the more formal carte de visite purpose.

We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
