Artwork featuring The Temptress

"Lady Lilith"
This beautiful woman is a muse, temptress, sorceress, saint, dreamer, mourner, voluptuary, murderer:these types of paintings were an obsession of English artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882) throughout a key period of his career, as seen in his paintings of sensuous "stunners".
"Lady Lilith," Dante Gabriel Rossetti, 1868. Oil on canvas from the collection of the Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington.
