#WombatFriday: A Delight, a Madness!

Happy #WombatFriday!

“The wombat is a joy, a triumph, a delight, a madness!”–Dante Gabriel Rossetti


This week’s Pre-Raphaelite fun:

This week, Terri Windling shared a lovely compilation of Pre-Raphaelite art juxtaposed with American Bluegrass/Celtic music. Guaranteed to add beauty to your day.

Monday marked the birthday of artist Sir John Everett Millais, so I shared links of previous Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood blog posts about him.

And following last week’s post about the unrequited love of Mariana, this week I shared the Unrequited Love of Dante and Beatrice.

This week also marks the birthday of Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron.

Julia Margaret Cameron: Exhibition held for 200th birthday of pioneering photographer.

CNN called JMC the “Annie Leibovitz of the Victorian era”.

Endymion at Night shares his favourite ‘Julia Margarets’. Beautiful selection!
