#WombatFriday, April 17th

“Do you know the wombat at the Zoo?” asked Rossetti; “a delightful creature — the most comical little beast.” (Memorials of Edward Burne-Jones, Vol. I)

This week I blogged about The Holy Grail Tapestries and Fanny Cornforth in the news. 

Since Fanny Cornforth has been an interesting news item this week and Emma Thompson’s new film Effie Gray recently debuted in America, people are becoming more aware of Pre-Raphaelite women. For those of you who are somewhat new to the subject, I’d like to share What is the ‘Pre-Raphaelite Woman’? with you.
