The Pre-Raphaelites captured my heart years ago. And Elizabeth Siddal enthralled me. She was the catalyst for my online endeavors and I am grateful for all the positive feedback I’ve had regarding this site.
More than a year ago, a visitor to this site (Hi John!) would send me emails about not just Siddal, but other women involved with or inspired by the Pre-Raphaelites. He considered it his mission to inspire me to be interested in these other women — women not only featured in the paintings, but who were inspired by the Pre-Raphaelites to explore their own creativity (like Julia Margaret Cameron). I have not heard from him in a long while, but his emails where not wasted. Because not only did I become captivated by these women, but I felt compelled to build a website about them.
Introducing PreRaphaeliteSisterhood.com, a weblog devoted to women involved with, or inspired by, the Pre-Raphaelites. But it’s not just about the women, its also about sharing some of the fabulous content and creativity that I’ve found elsewhere online: a widespread gamut of Pre-Raphaelite inspired jewelry, music groups, videos, and so much more. It’s about Pre-Raphaelitism and it’s modern day influences.
This site is new–with only two posts so far, it is still in infancy. But I hope that you will like it.
